Account Alerts

Keep track of your finances and detect fraud with real-time email or text message alerts.

Manage Your Money and Detect Fraud with Real-Time Alerts

Account Alerts give you real time email or text message alerts each time a transaction is made on your account.

Account Alerts let you keep better track of your finances and act as an early-warning system, notifying you about possible identity theft or security breaches of your accounts.

Wescom currently offers these Account Alerts:

Security Alerts

Online Access Locked
An alert will be generated when online access has been blocked due to invalid password attempts or invalid responses to security questions.
Member To Member Transfer
An alert will be generated when a cross-account member transfer is completed.

Account Alerts

Account Activity Summary
An alert will be generated every morning with a total amount of the prior day's deposits, withdrawals, and ending balance for the selected account.
Account Balance Change
An alert will be generated every time the balance on the selected account is over or below the set amount.
Funds on Hold
An alert will be generated when funds are placed on hold.
Check Cleared
An alert will be generated one time when the specified check has cleared your account. This alert is available for Checking Accounts only.

Card Alerts
