Cardinal Purchase Alerts vs. Cardinal Card Fraud Alerts
Cardinal offers two card security alerts. With Cardinal Purchase Alerts powered by Visa, an alert is sent to you every time there is a signature-based purchase with your enrolled card which meets the alert criteria you create. Cardinal Fraud Alerts will notify you of a suspicious purchase made at a terminal that is not in your normal purchasing behavior and will not allow the transaction to be completed until your response is received.
