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.

There is a way to cover those services (ATM and everyday debit card transactions) that are not currently covered in the two scenarios described above. This service is Debit Card Courtesy Overdraft.
