I THINK MY CARD MAY HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN A DATA BREACH
Often times when a breach is announced, it is not known immediately whether your specific card has been impacted. It is important to monitor information released from the retailer as well as any communications from United Bank to stay up-to-date on the breach. In addition, be sure to use online or mobile banking to monitor your accounts.
While it is not always necessary to replace a card that has been involved in a breach, if you are more comfortable doing so, please contact us at 800-423-7026 to discuss options.

I AM A VICTIM OF IDENTITY THEFT
If your information such as wallet, Social Security card, or other personal, financial or account information is lost of stolen, you should contact the three credit reporting companies and place a fraud alert on your credit account. Check your statements for unusual activity. Depending on what information was lost or stolen, you may want to take additional steps. For instance, you can exercise your legal right to a free copy of your credit report.
Place an initial fraud alert by contacting one of the following credit reporting companies. They will contact the other two to alert them to your situation.
Request a credit freeze if you feel it necessary. This makes it less likely an identity thief can open new accounts in your name. To request a credit freeze, contact each credit reporting company to report that you are an identity theft victim and request a credit freeze. There may be a fee involved depending on the state in which you live.
Order your credit reports by contacting each of the credit reporting companies. Explain that you placed an initial fraud alert and order your free copy of your credit report.
Create an identity theft report by following these three steps:
1. Submit a complaint about the theft to the FTC at www.ftc.gov/complaint or by calling 1-877-438-4338. When you finish writing all of the details, print a copy of the report. It will print as an Identity Theft Affidavit.
2. File a police report about the identity theft, and get a copy of the police report or the report number. Bring your FTC Identity Theft Affidavit when you file a police report.
3. Attach your FTC Identity Theft Affidavit to your police report to make an Identity Theft Report.
Once you have completed these initial steps, be sure to review your credit reports and dispute any errors with the credit reporting companies. Contact United Bank for help ensuring that your United Bank accounts are safe.
