Had my bank account get compromised today! Had little over a thousand taken out! They think it was due to the records theft from the University of Utah Hospital! We received last week a letter from them telling of the theft & gave free credit protection & report & to keep track of our accounts. This morning I looked up our account and saw a bill pay to Ebill for $1013? So we just spent the day at the bank & police dept filing! Good thing is I found it during the pending stage & the dumb ass had to use a Ebill account to pull the money! We had to switch to a new account & now I will be changing all my passwords.

Are you sure it was the U of U incident. The Sheriff and the FBI said they had no way to read and that the tapes did not look to be tampered with.

Might want to take advantage of the Credit Review, but stop short of blaming the U just yet.

The quote from the Sheriff was that "they could not find their rears with both hands if they wanted to"

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

I have read the same thing and no I am not sure? The bank & PD both were leaning towards the records theft and also told me no one for sure knows how much or if any records were removed & that will need for the FBI to finish. They do know the info that was used was from a check & they also had the IP address of the person that accessed EBill! Only time we write checks are to the doctor, my wife likes it for back up for the insurance, so it could just be someone at the UofU?

Only if they want to loose their job.

Not hard to compromise a bank account if they know your routing and transit numbers. Heck, your bank could be to blame.

It takes a lot to read those tapes and know what you have after.

The bigger problem is if they set you up with freecreditreport.com

Those sneaky bastards will charge you for a monitoring service just for using them to check your credit. Try getting that charge back.

I had to yell darn near to the top for them to admit that they took it without explicit permission.

Wait..what!?!?! No, that can't be!

No the UofU paid for the credit monitoring, only thing I entered was the activation code. They do not have any of my billing info, but I am sure they will try in a year!

Me, my wife, my two older children received the credit protection & I also received a family protection account from them for a year. So to get that much protection, they may not be telling everything to the public?

Just put a freeze on your account. Even I can't access my credit, unless I unfreeze it. Then I only have a small window to make my purchase or get approval before it closes. Then you don't even have to worry about it. Never keep money in a checking account, and use a Visa for all purchases. The bank sends me an alert for all transactions over $250, so if one comes through I did not make, I can just cancel the card. Plus, I'm not liable for any purchases I don't make. An ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure in my opinion.

If everyone is thinking alike, someone isn't ...
