Gordon Kidd, CEO of United Cumberland Bank, today announce its partnership with the Office of the Kentucky Attorney General to better protect our valued clients from scams, frauds and con artists.

United Cumberland Bank is encouraging its customers to sign up for Scam Alerts, an automated text or email alert system from the Attorney General’s Office that provides real-time alerts on the newest scam appearing in our Commonwealth. To enroll, text the words KYOAG Scam to GOV311 (468311), or enroll online at ag.ky.gov/scams and select text message or email alert.
