Fraud Information Center
Identity theft can occur when someone uses your name, Social Security number, credit card or bank account number without your authorization. With this information they can fraudulently open accounts, make purchases, empty your bank account and damage your credit.
Glenview State Bank will never ask that you verify any account
information by phoning or emailing you. If you have any questions
or concerns, please call us at (847) 729-1900. Also, if you receive
an email purportedly from GSB that you feel is suspicious, please
FORWARD that email to firstname.lastname@example.org to verify its authenticity.
What GSB provides to protect customers:
- Free Paper Shredding Days
Proper destruction of confidential information is an important step in preventing identity theft, the fastest growing crime today. GSB hosts four events at our branches annually where individuals may bring up to 25 lbs. of documents to be securely destroyed. Drive-thru service allows people to remain in their cars as our staff removes the items for shredding in on-site industrial trucks. The Bank started the free shredding days nine years ago. In 2012 alone, more than 2,000 cars drove through with more than 70,000 pounds of paper during the four days.
