smsGuardian Protecting You 24/7
Did you know that identity theft is the fastest-growing crime in the United States? Many thieves these days have come to rely on the internet, telephones and even your trash as a means of stealing your identity and your money.
That's why we're proud to introduce smsGuardian, a new service available to our customers.* This service is tied to your Grand Marais State Bank Debit Card, and provides text alerts to you, triggered by situations in which your card was used.
Features of smsGuardian
You can receive text messages when your Debit Card:
- Has purchases greater than $300
- Is used more than 6 times within a 24 hour period
- Has declined transactions
If a transaction is legitimate, you can simply ignore the message. If the transaction is fraudulent, you can reply to the smsGuardian text with the code that you received and your Debit Card will be blocked from further use.
Signing up for smsGuardian

Enrollment lasts for one year - at the end of one year you will receive a text to re-enroll.
You may discontinue the receipt of alerts immediately by texting the word STOP in reply to a Guardian Alert.
