Debit Card Restrictions

At OMEGA Federal Credit Union your financial security is a priority.  To protect you from fraudulent debit card use, we have blocked certain debit card transactions.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but protecting your accounts and OMEGA from fraud is our primary concern.

Your Personal Identification Number (PIN) in known only by you.  It is extremely difficult for someone else to use your PIN to conduct a transaction if they don’t know it.  However, signatures are easily forged and not regularly checked by many retailers.  That is why some transactions require the use of your PIN.

ANY International point of sale or ATM transactions MUST be conducted with your PIN.  Any other type of transaction including signature-based (credit) or e-commerce will be denied.  If you plan to travel outside the US and would like to use your debit card for more than PIN-based transactions, please call us at (412) 369-3800 and we will be happy to temporarily lift the restrictions on your card.
