Frequently Asked Questions:
A person from the US Bank Fraud Team just called me. What do I do?
- Verify that the individual contacting you is a valid US Bank representative. Ask them for a call back number that routes you to their main customer service phone number (800-344-5696).
- Use the call back number to contact the individual. If this number confirms their identity as a US Bank representative, proceed with providing them information needed to resolve the situation identified by the Fraud Team.
- You will be asked to provide a Social Security Number. Reminder: The information you need to give is you Campus Wide ID (CWID). Do not provide them with your Social Security Number. When verifying information, do not give the card number to the representative; ask them to read the card number and confirm the information provided.
- If it is determined that the transaction is fraudulent, the bank will send you an affidavit. Forward a copy of the affidavit with your packet to the Procurement Card Program, CP-300.
Note: Cardholder's are not held liable for unauthorized/fraudulent charges when they are properly reported to US Bank, which includes submitting all required fraud documents to US Bank by the dates provided by US Bank.
