The chip technology used in your VCU MemberCard keeps your data secure, so you are protected against skimming, fraud and electronic pickpocketing. You are protected against unauthorized purchases so long as the MemberCard Debit PIN Agreement has been upheld.
- Notify VCU if you are planning to use your MemberCard outside Canada. Unexpected and uncharacteristic spending patterns may be seen as fraud and your card may be blocked.
- You can use your MemberCard to withdraw cash (local currency) at any international ATM displaying the symbols on the back of your card. International ATM fees apply.
- Check the month your MemberCard expires. If you will be on vacation that month, contact Vermilion Credit Union to get your new card before you leave.
- Never lend your card to anyone, including friends and family. Lending out your card may void your fraud protection.

- Never disclose your PIN to anyone. When selecting a PIN, avoid obvious combinations such as sequential numbers, birthdate, phone number, etc.
- Check your statements regularly and notify VCU immediately if you detect any unusual activity such as purchases you did not make.
- When you get a new card, shred or destroy your old card.
- Report lost or stolen cards as soon as possible.
