What is Visa Zero Liability?
By pressing credit when you use your Visa Credit card, you gain access to all Visa’s security benefits such as Visa’s Zero Liability Policy which protects against unauthorised transactions. Visa’s Zero Liability Policy is a guarantee from Visa that Visa cardholders will not be liable for an unauthorised transaction made as a result of card fraud or stolen cards.*

What happens if my card has been used fraudulently?
A credit card or debit card may be flagged as “compromised”, if any suspicious or out of the ordinary transactions are identified on your account by our fraud management service, ORION.
We partner with ORION to ensure the security of your card is maintained 24/7. Orion is a renowned fraud management service who monitors activity on your card, scanning for any transactions that may be suspicious. If they come across anything out of the ordinary, they alert us immediately so that we can get in touch with you.
As soon as we receive any alerts, we contact our Customers to notify them of what has happened and what needs to be done to make sure their accounts stay secure. The card monitoring service is also in liaison with the appropriate authorities to alert them on the matters.
When the possible compromise is considered to be a HIGH risk alert (where an unknown third party may have access to your card details), we cancel your card, effective immediately.
Your local branch are notified straight away if this happens and will get into contact with you by phone, as soon as they can, to avoid any inconvenience. This also provides you with an opportunity to arrange a replacement card straight away at no cost. That is why it is important to keep your contact details up to date.
If you choose to replace your Visa, we encourage you to make sure you provide your new card details to any companies you have previously organised regular payment arrangements with - just to ensure bills/direct debits continue to be paid (e.g. insurance, pay TV, phone bill) and you don't suffer any defaults.
We also recommend to those affected by HIGH RISK alerts that they peruse their account and statement to verify transactions. If you detect any fraudulent activity in your statements, please contact your local branch to arrange a return of the funds.
