If a transaction is made in a foreign currency, the alert will show you the equivalent in GBP. You can customise which cards you receive alerts for, and set a limit if you only want to be notified for transactions above a certain amount.

Stay safe from fraud

By setting up transaction alerts, you can help make sure your money and cards are better protected from fraud. If you receive an alert but haven’t used your card, get in touch with us straightaway on 0345 08 08 500.
