Equifax Breach...

                 What this means to you...

Dear Customer,

You have likely heard about the recent Equifax data breach, as this unfortunate event affects approximately 44% of Americans.  Equifax was compromised and the personal information of approximately 143 million consumers was stolen. The information leaked may include:

  • Consumer names

  • Social Security numbers

  • Addresses

  • Driver’s license numbers

This was NOT a compromise of Woodford State Bank and no information was taken from our systems. We wanted to share this information about Equifax to ensure you are aware of the issue and take the proper precautions to reduce the chances of fraud and identify theft.

Equifax has set up a special website to provide updated information to consumers:

In addition, Equifax is suggesting you take the following steps to protect yourself:

  • Check if you are affected and regardless, enroll in the free identify protection offered by Equifax:  

    • Monitor you bank account for fraudulent activity

    • Obtain and monitor your credit report

    • Consider placing a “fraud alert” on your credit report

      • Consider placing a “credit freeze” on your credit report
