BRB has learned of an increase in fraudulent check card transactions originating in grocery stores throughout Virginia. In an effort to protect your account from this type of fraud, we have blocked signature based transactions where the fraudulent activity occurred.
If you need to make purchases at these merchants, choose a PIN based transaction. Also, please make sure to use the chip reader and do not swipe your card unless the merchant isn't chip ready.
Should you notice transactions that you have not authorized, please notify the Bank as soon as possible. Additionally, you may want to check with your other credit card/check card providers to ensure that fraudulent transactions have not been processed.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience our actions may cause.
Thank you for choosing and trusting us!
