We have been informed by MasterCard that a security breach at Heartland Payment Systems, a third party payment processor that serves over 250,000 retailers nationwide, could impact a significant number of our members’ debit cards. At this time we are working with MasterCard to determine the cards that might have been compromised in this security breach. The breach occurred during the time period of May, 2008 through August, 2008. We have not experienced an increase in fraudulent activity in our card base as have other financial institutions with cards involved in this security breach.
At this time we are asking our members to pay close attention to the activity on their debit cards and report any suspicious activity immediately by calling 317.558.6337 or 317.558.6332. As we continue to get further updates from MasterCard on the extent of the security breach we will communicate this with you. We will make a determination on our actions regarding the impacted cards once we have confirmation on the severity of the breach and the cards impacted. We are closely monitoring all of our suspicious activity reports and will continue to employ the latest security measures.
If you have any concerns please contact Member Services at 317.558.6299, use our Live Chat service or visit one of our branch locations.
