									                           IMPORTANT SECURITY MESSAGE TO
                           ALL UNITY BANK ACCOUNT HOLDERS
Recently Unity Bank was alerted to several different email scams that claimed to have been generated
from Unity Bank. If you have responded to or clicked on any links contained in any emails which
requested you to disclose sensitive information you should call 1-800-618-BANK(2265) or visit your
local branch office to report the fraud.

                           TIPS ON HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF
    •   Never provide your personal information in response to an unsolicited request, whether it is over the
        phone or over the Internet. Emails and Internet pages created by crooks may look exactly like the real
        thing. They may even have a fake padlock icon that ordinarily is used to denote a secure site. If you did
        not initiate the communication, you should NOT provide the information.

    •   If you believe the contact may be legitimate, contact the financial institution yourself. You can verify
        phone numbers and Web site addresses on your monthly statements you receive from Unity Bank, or you
        can look the company up in a phone book or on the Internet. The key is that YOU should be the one to
        initiate the contact, using the contact information that you have verified yourself.

    •   Never provide your password over the phone or in response to an unsolicited Internet request. A financial
        institution would never ask you to verify your account information online.

    •   Review your account statements regularly to ensure all charges are correct. If your account statement is
        late in arriving call your financial institution to find out why. If your financial institution offers electronic
        account access, periodically review activity online to catch suspicious activity as soon as possible.

    •   Unity Bank will never send you an e-mail asking for your PIN/Password when servicing your account.
        Unity Bank will never send urgent or time-sensitive e-mails that ask you to provide, update or confirm
        sensitive information such as your Online User ID, Password, PIN, SSN, ATM/Debit Card, account
        number or mother’s maiden name.

If you feel that your personal information may have been compromised in any way please do not hesitate to
contact us.

Sincerely,
Janice Bolomey
SVP/Branch Administrator
