ST. LOUIS COUNTY  •  Midwest BankCentre has learned of a security
breach affecting some customers' personal information late Monday
afternoon, the bank announced on its website.

The bank immediately told the Secret Service, which is investigating.
The bank reports it has no evidence its security system was breached,
but it has asked a forensic firm to investigate the source of the
breach, including all of the bank's vendors.

The bank is now contacting all affected customers and will be offering
free identity theft protection. Staffers can also answer customer

The bank has seven branches across the St. Louis area.

Because of reports of credit card fraud in the area, including fraud
affecting customers of Schnucks supermarkets, the bank is now
requiring debit card users making purchases of more than $100 in
Missouri or any amount outside the state to enter a personal
identification number to authorize the purchase.

The bank encourages customers to monitor account activity, and if you
notice any fraudulent or suspicious activity, please report it to them
immediately at 314-631-5500 or 1-800-894-1350.
