Contact Other Creditors
Contact any bank or other creditor where you have an account that you believe may be the subject of identity theft. Advise them of the identity theft and request that they restrict access to your account, change your account password, or close your account if there is evidence that your account has been the target of criminal activity. Also ask to cancel old and issue new credit cards, ATM cards, debit cards, and/or checks, as appropriate.
Report Unsolicited Requests for Credentials
CCB Community Bank will never contact our customers on an unsolicited basis (i.e. phone, email, text) and request logon credentials such as username and password. We will never send an email request asking you to verify or update personal information or passwords by replying to the email or by going to a website through a link included within the email. If you ever receive an unsolicited request that appears to come from CCB Community Bank asking that you provide your account information, user name, and/or password, DO NOT respond to the email or phone number provided and contact us at 1-855-491-2273 during business hours or send us a secure email.
