Important Notice: All First State Bank Customers
Even though First State Bank of Uvalde does not report customer information to Equifax, we feel it is important for you to know the following:
Recently, the credit bureau reporting company Equifax announced a major data breach of their computer systems potentially impacting approximately 143 million Americans. Equifax reported from mid-May through July of this year unauthorized persons gained access to names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and in some cases driver’s licenses.
Equifax has established a website (https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com), where consumers can get information on this information security breach and how they can protect their credit. In addition, the Federal Trade Commission (www.FTC.gov) is offering steps consumers can take to help protect their information from being misused.

Bank accounts, credit card activity, and consumer loan activity, etc. should all be reviewed on a regular basis to detect any fraudulent transactions. If fraud is detected, please notify us promptly.
