Red Flag Rules Compliance Statement
In compliance with the Federal Communications Commission’s Substantive Rules 16 C.F.R. §681.2(b)(5), Eastex is providing this notice to advise you of your rights concerning identity theft and Red Flag Rules. Eastex (Eastex) has developed and implemented a written Identity Theft Prevention Program to detect, prevent, and mitigate identity theft in connection with the opening of certain accounts or certain existing accounts. The Eastex program addresses methods of identifying, detecting, and preventing Red Flags. Eastex makes every effort to detect Red Flags, such as by obtaining identifying information about and verifying the identity of a person opening an account. Eastex also authenticates customers, monitors transactions and verifies the validity of change of address requests. In order to prevent Identity Theft, Eastex will not open a new account and will close an existing account, and notify law enforcement if Red Flags are detected.
