Fraud & Identity Theft Awareness
Please review the following important information that can help you protect yourself from personal information scams and help protect your privacy.
German American Bancorp values the safety and security of our customers, your accounts and identities. We want to help you take precautions that will protect you. Education and awareness is the most important step. Consider the following as you take steps to protect you and your personal information online.
There are many types of fraudulent activities that could be used to attempt to steal your personal information.
Phishing:Pretending to be a financial institution or other company and sending email or pop-up messages to get you to reveal your personal information
Skimming: Stealing credit/check card numbers by using a special device on ATMs or when processing a purchase
Pretexting: Pretending to be you when they call financial institutions, phone companies and other sources to get additional information
Redirecting your mail: Filling out a change-of-address form to have your billing statements sent to an address they choose
Old-fashioned stealing: Grabbing wallets and purses, mail (including bank and credit card statements), pre-approved credit offers, new checks or tax information; they can even steal a company’s personnel records or enlist employees who have access to your information
Dumpster diving: Rummaging through trash looking for bills or other paper with your personal information on it
German American Bancorp and its family of affiliated financial services companies will NEVER call or send you an email asking you to supply personal information, such as:
You should NEVER supply your username, password, account number, credit card number or any other personal or confidential information via phone or email, and NEVER click on links or reply directly to any email in question. If you receive a suspicious email, you should DELETE it immediately.
Check your accounts and bank statements (online or paper) each month to look for fraudulent activity. You should also review your credit report annually for transactions and accounts you don't recognize.
If your identity is stolen or at risk
Notify all of your banks and financial companies immediately. You can call our Customer Care Center at (800) 482-1314, and we'll work with you to help correct any unauthorized transactions in your account(s) and help protect you from any future identity theft or account fraud. You should also take the following steps:
Call the fraud department of all 3 credit reporting agencies and ask them to place an alert on your file. This alert tells creditors to call you before they open any new accounts in your name.
File a report with your local police. Having a police report can help clear up your credit records later on, even if the thief is not caught.
File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) by calling their toll-free hotline at 1-877-IDTHEFT (1-877-438-4338) or by visiting www.ftc.gov/idtheft.
