Important Information About Debit Card Fraud

At BankNewport security is of the utmost importance. Should a data breach at a national payment processor or merchant result in debit card information becoming compromised, we take immediate action to protect our customers and their account information.

In addition to notifying all customers whose cards may have been affected, we may also take the conservative approach of closing the cards and issuing replacements as necessary. As long as we are notified by customers according to their agreement, no BankNewport customer will suffer a loss as a result of any such fraudulent card activity. Replacement cards are available by mail in 7-10 business days and mail rush orders can be placed for a nominal fee. If you would like your debit card immediately, please visit one of our branches and they will provide you with a card that same day. 

If you feel your debit or credit information may have been compromised, please contact Customer Service at 401.845.2265 or 877.709.2265 outside the Newport County area and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.  Customer Service is available Monday - Friday from 7:00 AM - 7:00 PM, and Saturday from 8:00 AM –2:00 PM. To report a lost/stolen Visa® Debit Card after hours, select option 6.
