Omaha Credit Union Restricts Online Debit Card Transactions Due to Fraud Warning
OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) – The Creighton Federal Credit Union warned customers Monday that it is limiting online debit card transactions to one per day in an attempt to stop widespread payment fraud.
“Purchases by debit card in person at retail stores or transactions at ATMs are not affected and will continue to be allowed,” the CFCU said in a statement emailed to 6 News.
The statement said the restriction would be in effect “for a short period of time,” but the notice did not specify a time frame.
Customers who need to make more than one online purchase per day have been advised to request an exception by calling 402-341-2121.
On Monday, a red banner with the same information was placed at the top of the CFCU website.
“We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience,” the statement said.
