SENATE BILL S. 2155
S. 2155 is a key platform of the Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation, brought to you by America’s Credit Unions. The bill passed the Senate and the House with wide bipartisan support and was signed into law by President Donald J. Trump on May 24, 2018.
S. 2155 will protect seniors from elder abuse, make mortgage processing easier and quicker, increase affordable rental housing in our communities and help Icon Credit Union provide better service to our members. 
FRAUD PROTECTION – USING YOUR DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD
How do you pay for your purchases? It may be instinct for you to pull out any piece of plastic without thinking, but your random card of choice might not be the safest way to pay. Debit cards are great for helping you stick to your budget and steer clear of debt. Both debit 
and credit cards allow you to contest fraudulent charges on your account, or freeze your credit on a compromised card. However, sometimes you might want to just pay with cash.
When using a debit or credit card for purchases, here are some things to watch for to ensure you are protected against fraud: 
1.) At the pump: Card skimmers at gas stations are on the rise. By using your credit card instead of your debit card at the pump, you’ll have an added layer of protection against fraudsters accessing your checking account and removing all of the funds before you have a chance to see it and stop it.
2.) At an isolated ATM: Isolated ATMs in locations with very little security and sparse foot traffic are prime targets for hackers. Be aware of your surroundings and watch for people loitering around the ATM.
3.) In an unfamiliar location: When on vacation, think before you swipe. You don’t know the area and you can’t be certain which clerks are to be trusted. You might consider using your credit card or paying with cash to provide you greater protection against fraud. It’s a good idea to keep multiple forms of payment in multiple places while on vacation. If one of your cards is lost, stolen or compromised, you will still have the access to funds to be able to continue to enjoy your trip.
4.) For large purchases: If you’re springing for a big-ticket item, your debit or credit card offers you dispute rights in case the product doesn’t turn out as you expected. 
5.) Restaurants: When visiting an unfamiliar restaurant, consider paying with your credit card or cash to protect against fraud. 
Always use your debit or credit card with caution. Check the location for anything that looks out-of-place, such as a newer keypad on an older machine or a hard-to-use slot for your card. Don’t forget to cover the pad with your hand when inputting your PIN. Stay ahead of hackers by using your cards wisely!
