A Visa debit card is a debit card that's issued through a bank where you have your account, but it is backed by the credit company Visa. As a security precaution, it's suggested that you regularly check your statements to account for all of your purchases and to catch any problems where money is being paid out that you didn't spend. There are also a number of different ways for you to check your statement, depending on your preference.
Things You'll Need
- Visa debit card information
- Bank account information
Receive your monthly statement. When you use your debit card, the money comes straight out of your bank account, and you can check the purchases listed on the statement against those you actually made.
Access your bank account online. If your bank offers online banking then go to your bank's homepage and either access your online banking account, or set it up and then access it. The bank should have a list of your purchases up to that day, listing what you have and what you've spent on your online statement.
Call your bank and ask for your current statement information. You will need to provide your bank account number and answer security questions to prove that you are who you say you are, but when you have you can ask questions about your current statement. You can also show up in person and get a printed copy of your statement, or ask to see it while speaking with a teller.
