Hyatt Card Breach Update
If you stayed, ate, or played at a Hyatt hotel between Aug. 13 and Dec. 8, 2015, there's a good chance your credit or debit card data was stolen by unknown cyber thieves who infiltrated many of the hotel chain's payment systems. In its first disclosure about the scope of a breach acknowledgement last month, Hyatt Hotels Corp. says the intrusion likely affected guests at 250 hotels in roughly 50 countries.
In a statement released Thursday, Hyatt said the majority of the payment systems compromised by card-stealing malware were at restaurants within the hotels, and that a "small percentage of the at-risk cards were used at spas, golf shops, parking and a limited number of front desks."
To better serve our customers... Over the next few months, you will begin seeing changes to your banking experience, here at Pioneer Bank of Wisconsin. We will be converting to a live system on November 16, 2015. We will keep you updated with these changes.
ATMs: During the transition, ATMs may be inoperable for a short time. Please remember that you may use your Pioneer Bank of Wisconsin MasterCard® debit card at any ATM that participates in the following networks: PLUS, Cirrus, Pulse, and SUM
Bill Pay: There will be changes to the bill pay system. Current payees will transfer to the new bill pay system and you will not need to reestablish your payees or scheduled payments. However, if you are currently enrolled in eBills, you will need to re-enroll on the new system. After the transition, you will not have access to your bill payment history. If you would like to maintain a copy of your bill payment history, you will need to download the information by 11/09/2015 at 6:00 p.m.
Electronic payments made through bill pay will not process unless funds are available in your checking account. If the funds are not available, the system will retry for 5 consecutive business days to process the payment. After 5 attempts, the payment will not process and will be canceled. Please note that the scheduled payment will draft from the checking account 1-2 days prior to the due date that has been selected.
You will be unable to access bill pay from 11/09/2015 until 11/16/2015; however, any payments that have been scheduled in bill pay will process without interruption.
