Uses of VTM Card

  • Card is mailed to you at no risk since Bank mails card before it is activated and funded
  • Purchase cards individually or in multiples for corporate clientele

  • Load/Reload occurs within minutes after your instruction is received; thereby providing you with quick access to your money.
  • Your loading instruction is easily sent to Bank via Fax or Email
Personal Identification Number (PIN)
This is a 4-digit number provided with the VTM Card. It is important that you do not share your PIN with anyone and that you keep it in a secure place accessible only by you. Memorize your PIN and do not carry around with the Card. Security and Confidentiality of your PIN are important because the PIN is a means of authentication to access funds on your VTM Card.

You may go online via Bank’s web site and change PIN at anytime; however, you need to know the old PIN in order to create new PIN. If you are unable to recall your PIN, contact the Bank for new card and PIN as PINs are pre-assigned and Bank is unable to re-issue only PIN.

If you forget your PIN when attempting transactions, your Card will be temporarily blocked after 3 failed attempts. This measure is in place to safeguard your funds in the event the Card is lost or stolen and someone else is trying to guess your PIN to deplete funds on the Card. Remember, this is only a temporary block allowing you time to report the Card missing for Bank to take more permanent action.

Lost, Stolen, or Damaged Card
Contact the Bank as soon as possible to report your Card Lost, Stolen or Damaged so the Bank can immediately take necessary action to protect any money held on the Card; or if you have immediate access to the Internet, you may log in to the Card site given above and suspend the Card from further use. Subsequent to suspending or blocking your lost/stolen/damaged Card, contact the Bank to obtain a new Card and to have the Bank transfer any funds remaining on the lost/stolen/damaged Card onto the new Card.

Authorized Card Transactions
