IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING USE OF YOUR DEBIT/MASTERCARD
In an effort to help prevent Identity Theft and Fraud you may be required to use your PIN number to complete certain transactions. These transactions will be based upon national data involving fraud.
It will be important for you to know your PIN number. In transactions where you select Credit, the payment may be declined. If this happens, simply repeat the payment selecting Debit and enter your PIN.
