There are reports of fraudulent debit card charges being perpetuated in Georgia and Florida at grocery stores and discount stores. For your safety and the safety of your finances, all pinless transactions (transactions that require a signature) are being blocked in Georgia and Florida at all grocery stores and discount stores, including Wal-Mart, until further notice. You can still make PIN based transactions in Georgia and Florida. E-commerce (internet) and telephone orders are not affected by this temporary change.
Please be suspicious of any email or text message you receive stating that your debit card has been compromised or de-activated and for you to call a certain number to re-activate your card. This is a scam. American Pride Bank will never email or text you regarding personal account information. If you receive an email or text requesting personal information please contact one of our offices as soon as possible.
