Debit Card Update

To those customers affected by the recent nationwide compromise of debit and credit cards, we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we take measures to protect you and your bank accounts.

We were informed that new debit cards would arrive to you within two weeks of notification of the security breach at Heartland Processing. Production and mailing of cards was delayed due to the massive number of banks nationwide that needed debit and credit cards reissued. We have been informed that the remaining Alden State Bank cards will be in the mail the week of March 9, 2009. We remind you to continue to take steps to protect yourself by reviewing your monthly checking account statements and monitoring your accounts online using our Free Online Banking www.aldenbank.com. If you notice anything suspicious, please notify us as soon as possible.

Alden State Bank takes your account security and privacy very seriously, and we apologize for any inconvenience this incident may have caused you. If you have additional questions about this issue, please contact any branch or call our Visa Department at 231.331.4481, ext. 16.
