Card Fraud Protection
First Mid partners with a Fraud Detection Service to keep you safe! When suspicious activity is detected on your debit card, you will be contacted by text or phone to determine if the charges were truly fraudulent. If contacted by phone, the representative will identify themselves as a First Mid Fraud Detection Representative. You will never be asked for full account information or detailed personal information, you will only be asked for partial information which may be used to verify your identity.
If you cannot be reached by text or phone, the fraud detection service will leave a message and request that you call them back toll free at 1-877-253-8964 or 877-253-8962. If they are unable to reach you, for your protection, they could put a block on your card so that no fraudulent charges can be made. Learn more about the First Mid Fraud Detection Service.
Additional Card Protection
Receiving real-time notifications when your card is used is a valuable tool in protecting yourself from fraud. With the CardValet® app, you can set up real-time alerts, turn your card off and on, and set transaction limits for your card.

If you previously enrolled your First Mid debit card in Visa Purchase Alerts, this service is no longer supported by our cards. To replace this service, you should download CardValet and set up transaction alerts through the app.
