Falcon Fraud Center

In our continuing efforts to keep your accounts secure, we are launching a new alert system for all members to catch potential fraud - Falcon Fraud Center. This system will monitor your debit and credit cards for potential fraud.

Here’s how it works:

  • When potential fraud is detected, you will receive an automatic email notification from Xplore, with the option to reply with “fraud” or “no fraud.”
  • One minute after the email, you will receive a text alert from 32874 between 7am and 9pm, which also has the “fraud” or “no fraud” option.
  • If there is no response received from you, five minutes after the text alert, you will receive automatic phone calls to confirm or deny fraud.

Remember – our messages sent to you will NEVER ask for your PIN or account number. If you call us, we will ask to verify your account.

We recommend you store the following numbers in your phone for ease of access.

Visa Transaction Resolution Line - 888.526.0404 in the US and 206.352.4954 outside the US - This is the number to call if your card is declined while attempting to make a purchase.

Falcon Fraud Center Text - 32874 - This is the number you will receive a text from when Falcon detects potential fraud.

Falcon Fraud Center - 800.417.4592 - You will be called from this number when potential fraud is detected. Only call this number if you received a call regarding potential fraud.

Lost/Stolen Line - 800.682.6075 - Call this number when your debit or credit card has been lost or stolen. Your card will be deactivated and a new card sent out to you.

EMV Chip Technology

All Xplore Visa credit cards come with EMV chip technology built in. EMV provides enhanced security when using your card both domestically and internationally. During a point-of-sale transaction using an EMV-enabled terminal, the chip and terminal communicate to approve the transaction. No personal data is stored by the merchant, which means there is no data for criminals to steal.
