Planning a Trip?
We want to make sure that you have access to your accounts at Albina Community Bank whether you are at home, anywhere in the United States, or visiting another country.  Unfortunately, the incidence of fraudulent activity in various parts of the country or internationally may prevent us from providing access at all times or in all locations.  If you are traveling and plan to use an Albina credit or debit card, please contact an Albina banker in advance of your trip so we can make note of your travel plans.  While we cannot guarantee that all transactions will be approved during your travels, (there are times when this is out of our control), we will do what we can to help make your travels as smooth as possible.  When you contact us, we will ask where you are traveling, when you are traveling, and how we can get ahold of you during your travels; a cell phone, email address, etc., is very helpful.  With just a little advanced planning, we can help make your travels as worry free as possible!
 
Fighting Debit Card Fraud
Do we have your current phone number?  At Albina Community Bank, we protect your account from fraud by monitoring your debit card transactions; if we suspect fraud, we will call you to validate the transaction.  What can you do to help?  Make sure we have your current phone number on file, and let us know when you are traveling – together we can make sure your Albina Community Bank account is protected!  Click here for more information.
