Guardian Text Alerts

With Guardian Text Alerts from Paragon, you can take the first step to early identity theft or fraud detection. Customers signed up for the alerts receive a text message every time your debit card is used. The immediate detection of unauthorized charges can save you frustration, time and money. 

Each text includes:

  • Last four digits of your card number
  • Merchant where the card was used
  • Amount of the transaction
  • 8 character code

If the transaction is unauthorized, you can reply to the text with the code. This alerts the fraud center who will call you to verify and walk you through shutting down the card. Paragon will then order you a new card the following day.
