Phishing is one method used by criminals to access your accounts and possibly steal your identity. It generally involves sending e-mails to a random or targeted list of customers and directing them to provide their confidential information or to perform other tasks at a spoofed Web site.
A spoofed website is one that looks almost identical to a legitimate Web site. However, these sites are fakes that are used to obtain your personal information such as your account number, user id, password or other information that could be used to steal your identity
Unlawful Internet Gambling Prohibition Notice
In compliance with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA) and implementing regulations (Regulation GG) issued by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the United States Department of Treasury, certain transactions are prohibited within your account. Our financial institution is required to notify our commercial customers of this prohibition.
“Unlawful Internet gambling” is defined in UIEGA as placing, receiving, or otherwise knowingly transmitting a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the Internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received, or otherwise made.
“Restricted transactions” are defined in Regulation GG to be transactions in which funds are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with participation by others in unlawful Internet gambling. Restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through this account or any account you hold with our institution. Restricted transactions generally include, but are not limited to, those in which credit, electronic fund transfers, checks, debit card or credit card transactions, or drafts are knowingly accepted by gambling businesses in connection with the participation by others in unlawful Internet gambling. Internet gambling will generally be considered to be unlawful unless verifiable authorization is obtained by an appropriate State or Tribal authority.
