Debit Card Fraud Protection with Brella™
Northwest Bank & Trust Company debit card holders can set up alerts to quickly identify potentially fraudulent transactions using Brella (previously known as SHAZAM BOLT$). This free app by Shazam is available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Brella provides instant transaction control and allows you to set spending limits and be alerted whenever purchases exceed this limit, giving you peace of mind while shopping.
Debit card holders can instantly “pause” the card without affecting previous transactions if card is lost or stolen. While travelling or using a debit card infrequently, customers can use their Brella app to turn the card “on” or “off” as needed.
Fraud alerts can be set up for easy account monitoring. Set up alerts via text or email for:
- Purchases above your defined thresholds
- “Card-not-present” debit transactions
- Suspicious or high-risk transactions via Shazam Falcon Fraud Monitoring
Blocks can be set up for your convenience:
- Transactions over a specific dollar amount
- Internet or phone transactions
- Transactions outside the U.S.
