NebraskaLand National Bank Community Minded Award
PROTECT YOURSELF, PROTECT YOUR IDENTITYNebraska currently ranks 39th in identity theft and 23rd in fraud complaints in 2004, according to date released by the Federal Trade Commission. This growing number has grown concern to NebraskaLand National Bank. NebraskaLand National Bank launched a new program to help customers in cases of fraud.Customers at NebraskaLand National Bank are now being protected by Identity Theft 911, a free service for account holders. "There is very little that is protected anymore, " said Kim Schroll, executive Vice President of the bank."Even postal money orders, which have always been very safe are now being duplicated." For victims of identity theft, the service will provide a personal advocate who will assist the bank customers in contacting credit bureaus, credit card issuers, debt collectors, law enforcement and government agencies. A link on the NebraskaLand National Bank Web site www.nebraskalandbank.com will provide information on new threats.
