- Traveling out of state and plan to use your Mechanics Debit Card? Unfortunately, fraudulent debit card activity is on the rise internationally and throughout the United States. Mechanics Bank has taken steps to protect you. These practices are designed to identify certain geographic areas and types of merchants that are at high risk for fraudulent transactions and to block transactions at those locations—which may include common uses, such as gasoline and convenience store purchases. As a result, if you are traveling outside of Ohio and visit any of these high-risk locations, your debit card transactions may be blocked to prevent this type of fraud. Please contact our Answer Center at 419-524-BANK before traveling out of state to help avoid blocked debit card transactions. Here are a few other items to keep in mind:
- It’s always best to carry more than one method of payment (e.g., debit card, prepaid gift cards, traveler’s checks, cash, credit card).
- For security reasons, there are limitations on the dollar amounts of debit card transactions. The limit for cash withdrawals at an ATM machine with your Mechanics Bank Debit Card is $300 per day. Retail purchases where a pin number is used (including point-of-sale transactions) are limited to $1,000 per day. Signature-based transactions are limited to $1,000 per day. Please click on the chat icon or call the Answer Center at 419-524-BANK if you need to change these automatic limits.
- We may send texts and emails to notify you of potential debit card fraud. Legitimate messages from the bank will never ask you to provide any sensitive information. You are always welcome to contact us if you have any questions about messages you have received.
