Beginning on June 1, 2006, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) will use electronic delivery – through FDICconnect, its free secure Web site – as its primary method for distributing Special Alerts (SAs) to insured financial institutions. FDICconnect provides a number of benefits, including:
Approximately 45 percent of insured institutions already subscribe to receive SAs through FDICconnect. Those institutions that are not yet registered are encouraged to do so immediately using the instructions contained in FDIC FIL-32-2006. In addition, FIL-32-2006 provides more details about the change from paper-copy distribution to electronic delivery as the primary method of distributing SAs.
Information about counterfeit items, cyber-fraud incidents and other fraudulent activity may be forwarded to the FDIC's Cyber-Fraud and Financial Crimes Section, 550 17th Street, N.W., Room F-4004, Washington, D.C. 20429, or transmitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Information related to federal deposit insurance or consumer issues should be submitted to the FDIC using an online form that can be accessed at http://www2.fdic.gov/starsmail/index.asp.
Distribution: FDIC-Insured Institutions
