Crime Prevention Tip

To help ensure your credit/debit cards are not being used by another, consider writing "ASK FOR A PICTURE ID" in the signature block on the back of your cards. This will prompt a cashier to ask for identification of the cardholder. If you discover your cards have been lost or stolen, you should cancel them as soon as possible and make a police report.
