Important Information For Charter Oak Visa Credit Card Members

In our continuing efforts to reduce fraud and further improve the safety and security of your Charter Oak Visa Credit Card, we will be modifying certain card availability effective January 29, 2021.

We have been experiencing increased fraud within our Visa portfolio as fraudsters have become very clever in deceiving some of our members. Currently, your Visa available credit is immediately returned to you when we receive your payment. Beginning on January 29, 2021, we will be placing a 10-day holding period on credit card availability for certain larger payments above our fraud-detection thresholds until the payment is received and collected by Charter Oak.

This large-payment threshold may change on occasion based on our fraud analytics that we use to detect and deter fraud within our Visa credit card portfolio. Any payments below $2,000 will not be affected, as that would be the minimum fraud threshold. If you need sooner-than-10-day credit card availability upon your large payment to Charter Oak, a member of our Visa Department will be available to discuss this with you by calling 860.446.3301.

We value your membership with Charter Oak and we do realize this new holding period effective January 29, 2021 may be an inconvenience at times to some of our Visa credit card holders. We are taking these appropriate measures to ensure the continued safety and security of our Visa credit card members.
