Bank of Wisconsin Dells Debit Card

The BWD Debit Card is a flexible, safe and convenient alternative to writing checks.

  • It's easy to use - To make a purchase, just present your BWD Debit Card. Your purchase amount will automatically be deducted from your checking account. Every transaction will appear on your monthly statement with the detailed information you need: amounts, dates and locations.
  • It's convenient - It's accepted anywhere you see the familiar VISA logo and at thousands of ATMs worldwide.
  • It's safe - The BWD Debit Card is safer than carrying cash, easier than carrying a checkbook. And if your card is lost or stolen, you aren't liable for unauthorized purchases. Just call 1-800-383-8000 as soon as you realize your card is missing.

Planning to Travel or Make a Foreign Purchase?

To help ensure continued access to your funds, please contact us any time you plan to travel domestically or internationally. BWD currently blocks all NON-U.S. signature based and online transactions (with the exception of Canada). Make sure to contact us if you plan to use your BWD debit card for these types of transactions. ATM transactions are allowed in foreign countries, but you should still notify us of your travel plans.
Remember that when you plan to make purchases, BWD has also placed blocks in some states on certain merchant types due to high fraud trends. If you process your transaction as a credit and it declines, we recommend using your PIN to complete the transaction. Please contact us if you do not know your PIN, or would like to change your current one. For a list of current blocked states/merchants, please contact the debit card department.

Who is SHAZAM?

SHAZAM is a member-owned electronic funds transfer (EFT) network located in Iowa that the Bank of Wisconsin Dells partners with for all of our debit card and ATM processing needs.

How does SHAZAM help BWD with our everyday fraud concerns?

In an attempt to combat the ever present fraud in the industry, SHAZAM has an extensive fraud monitoring system called Falcon that monitors all of our customers’ debit card transactions. Falcon is a state-of-the-art neural network technology that helps to identify and reduce fraud risk by detecting potentially fraudulent PIN and signature-based debit transactions.

What happens if the Falcon system identifies potentially fraudulent transactions?

Please keep in mind that Shazam is our debit card processor and may try to contact you in the event that your card has activity that is deemed suspicious. You may receive a text alert when suspicious activity is detected on your Bank of Wisconsin Dells debit card. If you receive a “fraud alert”, reply Yes or No to confirm or deny the activity.
  • If you reply No (the activity is fraudulent), you’ll quickly receive a follow up text to let you know that a Shazam fraud specialist will call you to help protect your account. Your card will also be automatically blocked to prevent any additional fraudulent activity.
  • If you reply Yes (the activity was legitimate), you can continue to use your debit card as normal.
  • If you don’t reply to the text, or your phone number is not a mobile number, Shazam will attempt to reach you via an automated voice call.
The text message alerts will come from:
The automated phone calls will come from:
Make sure to save these numbers to your contacts so you don’t miss any alerts.
If your debit card is declined outside of normal bank hours, feel free to contact Shazam’s Fraud Operations at the phone number listed below to verify a temporary block has not been placed on your card.
