Traveling Abroad? Here's how to spend safely and securely.
If you're planning to go abroad, contact Maple Bank BEFORE you leave for worry-free travel. One way to reduce risk is by carrying less cash. You can take your Maple Bank Debit Card abroad, but please contact us first. We normally block foreign debit transactions for safety, but we can enable Debit Card access at your request.
Tips for using your Debit Card abroad
- Confirm your daily withdrawal limits
- Check our ATM locator to see if there are surcharge-free ATMs at your destination.
- Review your PIN – many foreign ATMs only support four-digit PINs that don't start with zero, and keypads often indicate numbers but not letters
Fraud and theft are real threats at home and abroad, so be sure to take precautions. For example, bring a list of your card numbers and contact information, keeping it in a safe place. Make a point of keeping money and cards out of public view. And consider enrolling in an identity monitoring service for identity theft protection and immediate support in case of loss or fraud. We want you to enjoy your travel, so contact us immediately if you suspect a fraudulent charge.
Enjoy your travels!
Your Security is our TOP Priority.
At Maple Bank, we are committed to helping you safeguard your financial information. As cybercrime and data theft become increasingly more common, it is important to always be vigilant about potential scams or data breaches. It is a good practice to always review your monthly statements closely to ensure that all entries and charges are legitimate. If you suspect fraudulent activity, contact your bank or credit card provider immediately. Remember that you have zero liability for any unauthorized charges to your account if they are reported in a timely manner. When shopping online, be certain that sites are secure before entering any credit card information, and be cautious of "phishing" emails asking you to provide information.
PLEASE REMEMBER: Maple Bank will NEVER request a customer's personal information (bank card number, account number, social security number, personal identification number or password) via email. If you should ever receive an email or a phone call from a source that claims to be Maple Bank, requesting your personal, confidential information, DO NOT respond and contact the Bank immediately.
