Fraudulent Call Alert
A recent scam has been brought to our attention in which fraudsters call clients pretending to be First Interstate or Mastercard employees asking for their PIN or social security number. Do NOT share this information with anyone. Please note, neither First Interstate nor Mastercard will ever ask for this information over the phone. For questions, please call our Client Contact Center at 1-855-342-3400.
Advancements with personal computer technology make it easier to produce authentic-looking counterfeit checks, altered checks, and electronic fraud, resulting in substantial check fraud losses. With First Interstate's online Positive Payee system, your company can protect its accounts from check fraud.
Through a continuously issued check file, we are able to better identify potentially fraudulent checks increasing the chances of early detection and return of unauthorized checks in accordance with federal regulation timelines. Issued check files and exceptions are all handled via secure Internet access. Speak with one of our experienced business bankers for more information and how to sign up.
To sign-up for Positive Payee, please contact your local Treasury Solutions Representative or visit your local branch.
