Dear Washington Mutual customer,

We recently reviewed your account, and suspect that your Washington Mutual Card account may have been accessed by an unauthorized third party. Protecting the security of your account and of the Washington Mutual network is our primary concern. Therefore, as a preventative measure, we have temporarily limited access to sensitive account features.

To restore your card account access, please take the following steps to ensure that your account has not been compromised:

1. Validate your Washington Mutual Internet Banking account. In case you are not enrolled for Internet Banking, you will have to fill in all the required information, including your name and you account number.

2. Verify your Washington Mutual Card Information for any unauthorized withdrawals or deposits, and check you account profile to make sure not changes have been made.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your assistance in helping us maintain the integrity of the entire Washington Mutual system. Thank you for attention to this matter.
