We have learned that some of our website users have reported receiving a
pop-up message that appears to come from 1st Source Bank. The message
talks about a breach at Epsilon Corporation, then asks for your credit card
number to check a credit report. This is a fraudulent attempt to steal your
credit card information and does not come from us.
Here is an example:
Attention 1stsourceonline1.com Visitor,
Data Security Breach Information
We want to make you aware of a situation that has occurred
that could be related to your personal information. Recently, there was a
massive system breach at Epsilon, a third party vendor that supplies marketing
services to a number of companies, including Best Buy, Chase, Citi, Disney, US
Bank, Marriott, Home Shopping Network and many others. Files containing
personal information were compromised.
Names, email addresses and some personal information was
exposed. Because of the increased risk of identity theft, we are urging you to
check your credit report for any activity that you did not authorize.
We want to help protect you against this data breach, by
offering you access to your credit score for free. This offer is available on
Thursday, December 20, 2012. Please be aware that although your credit score is
free, a credit card will be required to validate your identity.
If you see such a message, do not click any links and do not give anyone your
personal credit card or account information. What you should do:
- run an anti-virus program
- run an anti-spyware program
- clear your Internet cache
Remember that 1st Source Bank will never ask you for
information that we already have on file. If you have any concerns or
suspicions about a message from us, please feel free to call us at 574-235-2000
or contact us at 1stsource.com.
