Notice of Change to Visa Rules found in the Electronic Funds Transfer Disclosure
The new Visa liability rules make the following revisions effective October 17, 2014:
- The zero liability rule will now apply to all transactions conducted with a Visa branded card, including PIN-based transactions at Point of Sale and ATM. Previously , zero liability only applied to Point-of- sale Transactions.
- A cardholder will not be liable for any unauthorized transaction, as long as the cardholder has exercised reasonable care in safeguarding the card from risk of loss or theft, and, upon becoming aware, promptly reporting the loss or theft to the issuer. Previously, if the above conditions were not met your liability was the lesser of $50 or the amount of property, labor or services obtained by the unauthorized use prior to your notification to us. This maximum of $50 has been removed.
