Equifax, one of the largest credit agencies in the United States, confirmed they had suffered a major data breach that could potentially impact 143 million Americans.

We have recently seen increased levels of debit card fraud with counterfeit cards. Please ensure that we have accurate contact information in our systems so that the Bank or our Fraud Center can contact you if we notice any suspicious transactions. To limit our fraud losses, we have placed transaction blocks or restrict to PIN required on certain swiped transactions in several states. It is important to notify the Bank if you will be traveling so we can note your card accordingly. This will avoid any unnecessarily blocked transactions.
Debit Card Fraud Alerts.
In our continuing efforts to keep your accounts secure, we are improving our alert system for potential debit card fraud. The new system will include actionable emails, texts and automatic phone calls to expedite the identification of fraudulent card transactions.
When potential fraud is detected on your debit card, you will receive an automatic phone call, email or text notification with the option to reply with “fraud” or “no fraud.”
If there is no response received from you, your card will be blocked from future transactions until a fraud or no fraud confirmation is received. If your card has been blocked the fraud department can assist 1-800-417-4592.
To report a lost or stolen ATM or debit card, please call one of our offices. After hours, call:
