Debit Card Transactions in Foreign Countries
The security and protection of your accounts is our top priority. In order to safeguard your accounts against potential fraud we began blocking signature based debit card transactions as of July 23, 2009 from all foreign countries. This means you will need to use your PIN in conjunction with a debit card transaction in a foreign country. In the event that you are planning a trip outside of the United States, and prefer to sign for your debit card transactions, we will unblock your account. Contact TPB at 877-445-9550 or 210-228-9960.
