Protect Your Identity Following Equifax Data Breach
On September 7, 2017 Equifax (one of three national consumer credit reporting agencies) announced a data breach that exposed the personal information of nearly 143 million American consumers. Equifax reports that stolen information includes names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses and, in some cases, driver’s license numbers. To be clear, American Bank & Trust was not compromised, and your information was not stolen from our bank. However, if you are a Liberty Checking customer and take advantage of the Identity Monitoring offered through BaZing, your personal information may have been exposed during the Equifax breach. Our partners at BaZing have put together a document full of information and helpful tips that we’d like to share with our customers. Please rest assured that we take the security of our customer information very seriously, and we encourage you to take the steps necessary to protect your identity. Click here to read more.
