Financial – Huntington Bank Account Activation

Huntington Bank Account Activation:

Huntington Bank customers can enjoy a full suite of online banking features when they enroll with online banking.  Nearly every financial institution is moving to provide customers with more options for online account management and increasing the amount of control they can have on their accounts online.  One service available to customers with Huntington Bank Online Accounts is the ability to activate a newly received  debit card.  When new cards are received, the account is not available for purchases until the card and identity of the cardholder have been confirmed.  The reason for this is simple, if a card were to be intercepted before it arrived to the cardholder, purchases could be made as soon as it was removed from the envelope – providing activation before use prevents this type of fraud.
