What is eNfact?

eNFact, is a Falcon based system for fraud detection. It uses a neural network,daily reports,and a call center of skilled analysts to access the likelihood that fraud is occurring on an account, and to provide notification or card statusing as appropriate.

What are the benefits and how does it work?

eNFact assesses the fraud risk of debit activity without delaying transactions or inconveniencing cardholders.

We have added 45 days of  history of our members spending habits and the system will look at that and build spending pattern history going forward.  If the system detects unusual spending habits they will call you to confirm the tranactions.  If they cannot reach you, they may restrict the card 

The credit union reviews reports first thing in the morning too see if  any cards were restricted in the evening and then try and contact our member.

The Credit Union restricts all transactions out of the US If you are going out of the country please contact the credit union so we may open your card for travel.

We want to appoligize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you, but this service is in place for the protection of members account.
