Due to the recent compromise at the retailer Target, Meritrust Credit Union has received notification from Visa International regarding potentially affected Meritrust credit and debit cardholders.
Meritrust is mailing potentially affected members a letter with these steps to take to avoid any fraudulent activity.
- To avoid any possible fraudulent activity on the members’ account, we recommend members receiving the letter contact Meritrust to block potentially affected debit and/or credit card(s). If you receive a letter, you may block your Meritrust debit or credit card at a branch and have a new card instantly issued. Or, please call us at 316.683.1199 or toll free at 1.800.342.9278 to have a new card mailed to you.
- For your protection, if you receive a Target compromise letter and your card is not blocked within 30 days from the date of the letter, Meritrust will block the card to avoid fraudulent activity.
- This was not a compromise at or by Meritrust Credit Union.
- Meritrust has ongoing fraud monitoring measures in place to protect member accounts. While fraud resulting from data compromise is rare, we recommend members review monthly statements carefully and call Meritrust immediately in the case of suspicious or unauthorized activity. Members are not liable for fraudulent charges to their Visa debit or credit cards.
Our apologies for any inconvenience. Please contact Meritrust at 316.683.1199 or toll free at 1.800.342.9278 with any questions or concerns regarding the Target compromise affecting your Meritrust debit or credit card.
