Security


At Amboy Bank, we recognize that privacy and security of personal financial information is a concern to our customers. We have taken the utmost care in establishing and implementing policies and procedures to protect this information.

Amboy Bank may collect information volunteered by you during the application and information request process. In an effort to offer you the best and most current banking opportunities, we may contact you with news about Amboy products, services, and special promotions. If, for any reason, you would like to be taken off our e-mail list, please contact us at mailbox@amboybank.com

Amboy Bank is committed to produce the safest operating environment possible for our customers and to provide the most secure environment possible for worry-free Internet banking.

You can be assured of the following security measures:

Secure Communications
Data is encrypted as it travels to and from your PC. Encryption is accomplished through "Secure Sockets Layer," the de facto standard for data encryption on the Internet. This means your sensitive financial information cannot be deciphered by unauthorized individuals.

Secure Login
User Ids and passwords are stored on the Bank's computer, isolated from the Internet, where they can never be accessed or downloaded by anyone on the Internet.

Secure Environment
Our computer system does not connect directly to the Internet. It is isolated from the Internet via a "firewall" - a software and hardware product that defines, controls and limits the access that "outside" computers have to the Bank's computer. The firewall subscribes to the standards set by the NCSA (National Computer Security Association). In other words, use of the firewall allows only authenticated Bank customers or administrators to send or receive transactions through it.

Amboy Bank continues to monitor and review the security and privacy measures that it has in place to protect customer information. These measures are updated as practices change and new technology becomes available.

For information, please call Amboy Direct at 1-800-94-AMBOY, visit your local branch, or e-mail us at mailbox@amboybank.com.

PATRIOT ACT: IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.

What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.

Report Identity Fraud & Identity Theft

Identity fraud is usually limited to an isolated attempt to steal money from an existing account — such as a charge on a stolen check card.

Identity theft occurs when someone steals your personal information and uses it to open new accounts or initiate transactions in your name. Identity theft is easily confused with identity fraud. To help determine your situation, learn more about identity theft and identity fraud.

If the fraudulent activity is limited to your Amboy Bank account(s): Contact us immediately at 1-800-94-AMBOY.

If you believe you are a victim of identity theft:
Contact Amboy Bank Call us at 1-800-94-AMBOY to report any fraudulent activity on your Amboy Bank accounts.
Contact the major credit bureaus You can request that the three main credit bureaus place a short or long-term "fraud alert" on your credit file. This alert requires creditors to verify your identity before opening any new accounts in your name or changing any existing accounts. You will only need to contact one bureau, which will notify the others.

Credit bureaus must provide victims of identity theft a free copy of their credit report. You should request one from each bureau, as the information can differ. Review your credit reports carefully for fraudulent activity. If fraud has occurred, notify the credit bureau and the companies where accounts were opened to report the fraud directly.

Once a dispute has been resolved, the credit bureaus you contacted will send you another copy of your credit report. Review the report to make sure that all fraudulent activity has stopped and your file has been corrected.

For more information about the steps to take and for credit reports, contact:
Contact other creditors Contact your other creditors, including credit card and phone companies, banks, and other lenders, to notify them of potential fraud. Consider following up your telephone conversations with a letter.

Close any accounts that have been breached and reopen them with new account numbers and passwords. Do not use your Social Security number as a username or password.
File a report with the local police Contact your local police department if you suspect that your personal information was stolen. A police report may lend credibility to your case when dealing with creditors, who may require proof of criminal activity.
Report the criminal activity to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Call the FTC hotline at 1-877-ID THEFT (1-877-438-4338) to speak with a trained identity theft counselor. Or submit a complaint to FTC's secure online database at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov. Your information may be shared with other law enforcement agencies investigating identity theft.
Contact other agencies as appropriate
  • Postal Inspection Servicewww.usps.com. If you believe your mail was stolen or redirected, notify your local post office.
  • Social Security Fraud Hotline: 1-800-269-0271. If you suspect someone is using your Social Security number for fraudulent purposes, call the hotline.
  • Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)www.dmv.org. If you believe someone is trying to get a driver's license or identification card using your name and information, contact your local DMV.
Carefully review all your accounts Since identity theft takes time to resolve, you should continue to review all charges and transactions appearing on account statements and online. Immediately report any discrepancies.
