Debit Card Fraud Alerts

We stand on guard to protect your card
If we see something suspicious, we'll text

Your Peoples Debit Mastercard® offers unparalleled convenience and buying power. Unfortunately, criminals go to great lengths to obtain debit card numbers and personal PINs. To safeguard your finances, Peoples State Bank offers real-time fraud alerts when certain high-risk transactions occur on your debit card. With Peoples Guardian, fraudulent activity can be stopped in its tracks. The service is free* and enrollment is easy. Here's how it works:

  • A text message will be sent to your mobile device when certain high-risk transactions occur on your debit card.
  • If you do not recognize a transaction, follow the text instructions and we'll block all future transactions on your card. You can then order a new card by calling Peoples Customer Service number.
  • If you recognize all the transactions, you don't need to do anything. Your card will remain available for use.
  • Peoples State Bank will determine what types of transactions will generate a text message. The number of alerts you receive will be based on your card usage.

All that our customers in Wisconsin and beyond need in order to enroll in the Peoples Guardian program is a Peoples Debit Mastercard® and a smartphone or other mobile device capable of sending and receiving text messages. It only takes a few minutes to sign up, and you can do it right online.
