  • Card Security

    • To protect our Visa Debit and Credit Cardholders, LMCU has a Security partner that puts Anti-Fraud programs in place.

      Security will look for transactions posting to your account that do not fit your normal usage patterns, i.e. larger dollar amounts, greater number of transactions, purchases outside of the area or unusual types of transactions. Security will then try to contact the cardholder to confirm the activity to ensure transactions are valid. If security is unable to contact the Cardholder by phone they will leave messages with call back numbers and mail letters. If the transactions happen to be unauthorized, Security will then cancel the card to prevent further charges. Security will then refer cardholders to contact LMCU Card Services to request a new card and to talk about process for reimbursement of those unauthorized charges.

      The financial safety of our Members is of utmost importance to Lake Michigan Credit Union. We are continually updating and upgrading our systems to change and strengthen our lines of defense to protect our Cardholders. If you still have questions, please feel free to call our Card Services Department at (616 or 800) 242-9790 x 9915.
  • Debit or Credit Card Transaction Dispute

    • If an incorrect or unauthorized transaction posts to your account, you must attempt to resolve the error with the merchant first. If you are unable to reach the merchant or they are unable to help you, you can file a dispute with LMCU. If the charge in question is fraudulent or unauthorized, you are required to close your card and have a new card issued to avoid future charges from that merchant.

      To dispute a debit card transaction, we need your signature on a Dispute form. This form can be filled out at any of our branch locations. You may also contact our Member Services Department at (616 or 800) 242-9790 or send an email to [email protected] to have it mailed or emailed to you.

      You can also start a dispute by logging in to Online Banking, clicking on your Checking account and then choosing 'Debit/Credit Card Dispute' on the right-hand side.

      If you have any questions in regards to a charge, please call our Card Services Department at (616 or 800) 242-9790 x 9915.
