Online and Mobile Banking are live and we have launched our new operating system! For more information about our upgrade, please visit www.signature.bank/system-upgrade.
Protecting your personal information is our first priority. That’s why we have taken many steps to make your online banking experience as safe as possible, and we are continually looking for ways to improve the security of our online services.
Signature Bank of Arkansas would like to ensure that your card usage is free of hassles and unnecessary charges. Please see the helpful tips below, and remember that if you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact your banker.
When you pay for a purchase with your debit card, the merchant processes your card through a terminal, which places an “electronic hold” on your account; the merchant is then assured of receiving payment for goods sold or services rendered. When the merchant settles their card transactions (usually the same day, but possibly longer) your purchase amount is transferred from your account to the merchant’s account and the “electronic hold” is then released.
Other checks you have written may occasionally be presented for payment prior to the “electronic hold” being released. If this occurs, your account could be subject to insufficient funds or overdraft fees depending on your available balance and if you requested overdraft protection on these transactions.
To avoid unintended fees, make certain that you have available funds in your account before you initiate debit card transactions. Please remember that the amount of any overdraft privilege on your account is included in your available balance and may be accessed via a debit card transaction at a merchant or at an ATM if you have chosen to Opt-In to overdraft protection for debit card and ATM transactions.
During banking hours, you can call Customer Service at (877) 888-8550 and talk to one of our Customer Service Representatives. They will be able to assist you with all of your banking needs. If it is after business hours and you suspect fraud has occurred with your debit card transactions, you can call our Fraud Ops Hotline at (866) 508-2693 or if you are out of the country then dial (515) 558-7608 for assistance.
As part of our ongoing effort to protect you, Signature Bank of Arkansas introduced an added level of security to our online banking features. While the addition of this security measure may take a couple of moments the first time you access your information, the protection it provides is much more significant. You will be presented with a screen that provides your contact information in a masked format. From the available options, choose where you would like a Secure Access Code to be delivered. Once you have the Secure Access Code, enter it into the next screen and click submit. If you have questions please call us toll free at 877.888.8550.
Phishing emails could be produced fraudulently under the name of Signature Bank. If you have received an email from Signature Bank asking you to click on a link and verify any personal account or password information, delete it immediately and DO NOT RESPOND. It is NOT our practice to send you an unsolicited email to collect or verify this or any other account information.
Our current internet-banking product is secure and no email lists have been compromised. Frauds like this involve sending spam email to thousands of random email addresses in geographical proximity of the bank, hoping to reach bank customers.
If you received a fraudulent email, please contact us at 479.643.3700 or 877.888.8550 immediately. This will enable us to research the issue and take any action that we deem necessary.
