Each time you make an online purchase, Verified by Visa assesses the risk level of the transaction – certain activity may seem out of the ordinary, maybe because it’s a high dollar value, or a retailer you’ve never bought with before. If People’s Choice Credit Union is concerned a transaction may be fraudulent, you will be prompted to confirm your identity, and you will be requested to enter some personal details unique to your account with us. This information is used only to verify your identity, and is not stored by Verified by Visa, nor is it passed to anyone including the online merchant.
Protection the Verified by Visa way is simple because you don’t have to remember usernames and passwords – you will be automatically registered and protected. If your Visa card is new, People’s Choice Credit Union will register the card before we issue it to you. With existing Visa cards, People’s Chioce will take care of registering it as part of the Verified by Visa service.
