Viewing your transactions on a daily basis is the most secure method for fraud protection.
Using the PGB Mobile App you can manage your PGB Debit Card, including reporting it lost or stolen. You can even suspend your card if there is just the possibility that it was lost or stolen. The PGB Client Contact Center can order you a new card if it is not recovered.
You can suspend your card when you are not using it and reactivate it on your own through the PGB Mobile App/Manage Cards when you are ready to use it again. This feature allows you greater control!
You can use PGB NetAccess Online Banking to report your card lost or stolen and have the Client Contact Center order you a new card if it is not recovered. Once you receive your new card you can activate it easily within online banking.
