Review your account regularly.
Thieves can get your personal information by many means. So, it’s important to review your account often to make sure all charges to your debit or credit card are charges that you made. If anything looks suspicious, no matter how small the dollar amount, you should notify M&T right away. Never ignore suspicious charges.

M&T Bank Alerts are available for your M&T Card through M&T Online Banking. Suspicious activity alerts notify customers of certain potentially fraudulent activity on their M&T Card. Alerts are designed to be a helpful account management tool, but they do not identify all potential fraudulent activity and are not a substitute for security and fraud precautions including, but not limited to, verifying statements and being aware of your outstanding payments and available balance. For your protection, “suspicious activity” and “card PIN change” email alerts cannot be disabled. M&T Bank is not liable for any losses customers may incur due to an alert not being delivered.
