SHAZAM is aware of a phishing attack being broadcast through the Twitter hashtag #shazamdebitcard. This attack has led to the creation of several fraudulent “Shazam Debit Card” Internet sites. The sites claim to be collecting information for fast-cash loans; therefore, personal information, such as a person’s Social Security number, date of birth, and driver’s license number, is being targeted.
Cardholders should ignore any such sites and the Twitter hashtag #shazamdebitcard. Do not enter any sensitive data on these sites. If you have any questions call Home State Bank at 320.231.1118

ATM transactions: $300 limit per day (midnight to midnight)
PIN-Based transactions (does NOT include ATM transactions): $1,000 limit per day (midnight to midnight) These include any transaction done with a merchant where you key in your 4-digit PIN in order to complete the transaction.
Signature-Based transactions: $500 limit per day (midnight to midnight) These include any transaction done online, over the phone, or at a merchant where you physically sign your name to complete the transaction.
These limits are ‘per card’ so if two or more account holders on the same account each have their own card, each card has its own limits as shown above.

Protecting you from unauthorized use of your debit card is one of our top priorities. To reduce your fraud risk we have partnered with SHAZAM, our debit card provider, to implement a monitoring system called SHAZAM R.A.D.A.R., to help guard your debit card against fraudulent activity.
With SHAZAM R.A.D.A.R. Home State Bank is able to keep you safe by identifying our customer's general spending patterns and looking for transactions that appear out of the ordinary. If a suspicious transaction is detected on your debit card, you will be contacted by Home State Bank, or a SHAZAM fraud specialist calling on our behalf, to verify the transactions in question.
Using a debit card is safer than carrying cash and faster than writing a check. With the added protection of SHAZAM R.A.D.A.R., you can be sure that your card is safe, no matter where you are. We will continue to provide you with the best protection available.
