ID Theft and Fraud Protection
Financial institutions like Kansas State Bank now provide a way to keep you and your accounts safer with identity theft protection services, including the following:
- Credit and identity monitoring: Your credit file and public records get evaluated regularly for anything out of the ordinary. If anything changes in your credit reports, you receive alerts automatically.
- Credit checks: You can request Experian, Equifax and TransUnion credit reports every 90 days as one report, instead of individually getting all three. Checking these regularly can help you spot fraudulent credit accounts opened under your name.
- Fraud recovery support: If you become a victim of identity theft, your bank works with you to clear up your identity. You can receive a recovery plan and be reimbursed for up to $10,000 in relevant costs.

Fraud Prevention Alert System
If you receive a fraud alert from us...
We use a proactive alert system if we suspect potential fraud.
Here is how it works:
When potential fraud is detected, we send you an automatic email notification with links for “fraud” or “no fraud.” This email comes from our Fraud Center.
We also send a text alert between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. EST to which you can reply with “fraud” or “valid.”
If you do not respond within ten minutes of the text alert, the Fraud Center will call you to confirm or deny the purchase.
If we don't reach you on the phone your card may be blocked and no further transactions will be approved on your card until you call the fraud center or the bank.
OUR MESSAGES AND STAFF WILL NEVER ASK FOR YOUR PIN OR ACCOUNT NUMBER
YOU MAY RESPOND TO TEXT OR EMAILS FROM THE FRAUD CENTER OR CONTACT THE BANK
