Q: Why would I receive a text message asking for a "Bank ID"?
A: Because we partner with Mobiliti, a company that provides Mobile Banking, Text Banking and Mobile Browser Banking to many financial institutions, it's possible you may have accounts at another financial that also uses Mobiliti. Therefore, Mobiliti needs to know which financial institution you want information from when you send a text. Our "Bank ID" is ESFCU. You will need to include ESFCU in addition to the inquiry code each time you send a text. For example, to check your balance, you would need to send the inquiry code ESFCU BAL. There should be a space between ESFCU and BAL.
