ILA 1351 Federal Credit Union utilizes a cutting-edge fraud-detection system that helps stop fraud at the point of sale for credit and debit card transactions. This sophisticated and highly effective system is the most reliable tool in the industry to help minimize your risk of fraud.


The system identifies certain typical situations in which card fraud can occur. If questionable activity is detected, the system compares the charge in question to your normal spending pattern and "scores" it based on the likelihood of fraud.  If the system determines that there is questionable activity on the account, it is queued to an investigator to contact you for verification of the charges. If fraud is confirmed, your account is closed immediately and a new account is generated for you. 


It may turn out that it really was you making the purchase. But just as easily it could be that ILA 1351 Federal Credit Union has prevented you from being a victim of fraud.
