Visa® Credit Card Statement Notification

Visa® Credit Card Statement Notifications will notify you whenever you have a new Credit Card statement available to view.

Visa® Credit Card Transaction Alerts

Transaction Alerts will notify you whenever certain transactions occur on your credit card based on parameters that you set yourself. This can be used to notify you of potentially unauthorized transactions, or to watch for a particular type of activity on your credit card(s).

Visa® Fraud Alerts - Enhanced Fraud Monitoring

The Visa® Fraud Text Alert service helps identify and potentially prevent future fraudulent transactions from occurring on your DCU Visa® credit card(s) with a simple text. With DCU Visa® Fraud Text Alerts, you’ll receive a text when a transaction that doesn’t conform to your usual spending habits is detected.  

Overdrawn Check Alerts

A text message will be received whenever there are not enough funds in your account to cover a DCU check you’ve written. When the text is sent, specific details regarding the pending transaction(s) will also be generated as a message in Account Manager (found in Online Banking). The details will include the check number(s) being presented as well as the information needed to deposit enough money to cover the check before it is submitted.
