With the amount of fraud occurring from foreign countries that have obtained credit and debit card numbers, some countries have been blocked from transactions.

Currently, we are blocking:
Visa Signature (credit or debit)ATM (PIN transactions)
North Korea Iran
Saudi Arabia Sudan
Syria Syria

F&A takes fraud very seriously and every loss reduces our ability to maintain a high standard of benefits for our members. Thus, in order to prevent fraud, certain countries have been blocked from transactions on our credit and debit card. In order to prevent having trouble while outside of North America, we encourage you to contact our Telephone Service Center and let us know where you will be traveling. We will temporarily unblock signature based transactions with advance notice and dates of travel, but not ATM transactions.

For more information, or to let us know if you are traveling outside of North America please call 800-222-1226.
