I have mentioned in the past how beautiful the world has become because of technology that gives us so much convenience in our lives. It amazes me that I can get on my computer, find the wedding registry for my neighbors’ children, buy them something for their wedding and have it delivered directly to their house without ever leaving the comfort of my kitchen table. Life could not be better. However, whenever we have excellent things, it seems that people always try to figure out a way to steal from the system. We see exactly that in the world of credit cards, as fraudsters go to great lengths to take credit card information and try to compromise your information so they can commit fraud and steal your hard earned cash.
To combat this, Wasatch Peaks has invested in a product called CardNav. With this, you will receive real-time alerts of all purchases on your card. These alerts come immediately as the purchase is completed, and if you did not make the purchase, you could turn the card off. You can do all of this on your smartphone. Using CardNav allows you to be directly involved in knowing all of the transactions on your card and whether they are legitimate. There is a report that states “Card controls provide multiple benefits by enlisting potentially millions of cardholders in the fight against fraud, but only by making the provision of card controls one of its key priorities.” This product is free to all members, and I would encourage you to take the time to download it from Google Play or the App Store on to your phone, so you can have its benefits and also help us fight the fraudsters.
