Dear Customer,

During our regularly scheduled account maintenance and verification procedures
we were unable to verify your online account information.
This might be due to either one of the following reasons:
1. A recent change in your personal information (ie change of address).
2. Submitting invalid information during the initial enrollment process.
3. An inability to accurately verify your account information due to an internal
error within our processors.

We demand that you take 5 minutes out of your online experience and renew your
records to avoid running into any future problems with the online service.
However, failure to update your records will result in your account suspension.
Once you have updated your account records your internet banking service will not
be interrupted and will continue as normal.
