How Does FraudEYE Work?

Our 24/7 monitoring programs continually review your account for potential fraudulent activity. If we detect suspicious debit card activity, Civista FraudEYE alerts you by email, phone or text.  

When you receive a FraudEYE alert, we’ll ask you to verify that you authorized the transaction in question. For added protection in certain suspicious situations, we may block further use of your card until we receive confirmation from you that the requested transaction is legitimate.

Civista FraudEYE’s automated notifications allow us to quickly and securely communicate with you and suspend or reactivate your card if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Civista Bank monitors transactions on your debit card for potential fraud. When we identify a suspicious transaction, we may contact you to verify that transaction with you. In certain situations, we may block further use of your card until we receive confirmation from you that the requested transaction was legitimate. FraudEYE establishes a way that we can communicate with each other faster and thereby unblock your card more quickly.
Civista FraudEYE alerts you automatically by email and phone, using the email address and home phone number we have on file for you. If you prefer a text message instead of a phone call, text “Civista” to 47334 from your mobile phone number on file with the Bank to opt-in for text messages.
Our fraud alert service encompasses multiple strategies driven by current fraud trends. We look at many variables when determining that a transaction is suspicious and potentially fraudulent. These factors may include: the quantity, dollar amount and frequency of transactions; merchant type; and location.
We will suspend your debit card from future use until we verbally confirm your transaction was unauthorized. If your card is permanently deactivated, a new card with a new card number will be ordered, and your new card automatically will be registered in the FraudEYE program under the phone and email on file. If you are opted-in to FraudEYE text alerts, you will continue to receive alerts for your new card at the mobile number in our records.
