Debit Card Fraud Alert

Dairy Queen and K-Mart joined the list of merchants who are now currently investigating possible merchant data security breaches. Both retailers are offering customers who may have been affected in their specified time frames with additional credit tracking and/or protection offerings. Please visit  the Dairy Queen or Kmart websites for specific and up-to-date information on this incidents.

United Prairie Bank takes news of these mass card breaches seriously. Here is what United Prairie Bank will be doing to address this situation for our customers:

  • Additional monitoring of card transactions for those customers who we are informed may have been affected.
  • Direct contact with customers whose cards have suspicious card activity by a United Prairie associate to ensure the transactions are valid.
  • Placing orders of new cards for customers on a case-by-case basis if the customer makes a request. We do not currently have plans to automatically re-issue cards at this point.

    Our customers who are concerned they may be affected should:
  • Closely monitor their account and card purchase activities through eBanking, Mobile Banking or their account statements.
  • Be sure to keep their personal and account information private as phishing attempts by those who made the breach could follow. To learn more about your security and phishing, click here.
  • Contact your local United Prairie banker immediately or call our card provider right away if you notice any suspicious activity. (24-hour assistance: 1-800-472-3272)
