QUESTION: Marsha wants to know if the debit card has the same protection as a credit card if it is stolen. Dave has good news for her.

ANSWER: Absolutely. Directly from Visa’s website: You have protection for all transactions processed through the Visa system. The zero liability policy covers all credit and debit card transactions processed over the Visa network. If the card is used through an ATM system, it won’t be covered. It’s been this way since April 2000.
