Identity Theft

When someone uses your name, social security number and other personal information they are committing a serious crime called identity theft. 

We work hard to protect your personal information.  It is the cornerstone of our bank to maintain the privacy of your information and your relationship with the bank.

 What can you do to prevent this from happening to you?  Diligence. Awareness. Keeping track of your financial activity. 

If you suspect that you are the victim of identity theft contact us immediately at 501-221-6400.  We will work with you to correct the situation and protect your assets at Central Bank.

Fraud alerts can help prevent an identity thief from opening any more accounts in your name. Contact the toll-free fraud number of any of the three consumer reporting companies below to place a fraud alert on your credit report. You only need to contact one of the three companies to place an alert. The company you call is required to contact the other two, which will place an alert on their versions of your report, too. If you do not receive a confirmation from a company, you should contact that company directly to place a fraud alert.

TransUnion: 1-800-680-7289; www.transunion.com; P.O. Box 6790, Fullerton, CA 92834-6790

Equifax: 1-800-525-6285; www.equifax.com; P.O. Box 740241, Atlanta, GA 30374-0241

Experian: 1-888-EXPERIAN (397-3742); www.experian.com; P.O. Box 9532, Allen, TX 75013

Once you place the fraud alert in your file, you're entitled to order one free copy of your credit report from each of the three consumer reporting companies, and, if you ask, only the last four digits of your Social Security number will appear on your credit reports.
