Fraud Education Center

Fraud Education Center

American Bank of Commerce is committed to reducing bank fraud. We work hard to educate our employees and our customers about the numerous types of frauds and scams that are common in today’s world.


Debit Card Alert

In an effort to protect our customers after learning of a spike in fraudulent transactions in gas stations, pharmacies, and grocery stores as well as similar stores such as WalMart and Target, we have instituted a block in which customers will now be required to select ‘Debit’ and enter their ‘PIN’ for transactions at these stores when using their ABC Bank debit card.


Phishing Alert

American Bank of Commerce would like to alert our customers that there are phishing calls going out to many people in the West Texas area. These phone calls reference freezes on your Master Card and request debit card numbers. Please be advised that these phone calls are fraudulent and no information should be given out. If you have any questions in regard to these fraudulent phone calls, please feel free to contact us locally at 806-775-5000 or toll free at 888-902-2552.



EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard & Visa. It is a technology designed to reduce card-cloning fraud, and is the global standard for payment processing with credit cards and debit cards.


Heartbleed Internet Bug

American Bank of Commerce is aware of the “Heartbleed” Internet bug affecting many servers. We have already taken measures to help prevent a data breach.



smsGuardian is a service that uses text messages to enable you to monitor activity occurring on your account and to respond immediately to fraudulent activity.

This program offers another layer of security that helps protect your accounts.
