When an alert is received, simply check the transaction. If the purchase isn’t valid, call us right away to put a stop to the fraud. Judy Leonard, Retail Banking Officer states, “It’s like having a high-tech early warning system at your disposal every minute of every day.” With the SHAZAM BOLT$ app, customers can also access account balance information so they’ll always know whether they have enough money to make purchases.
