Lack Of Confidentiality Regarding Your Finances

What ever happened to the adage that says banking is confidential. If you do not want other people to know your business do not do any banking with the united Bank in Parkersburg on Market Street. I own a small business And in the course of getting a line of credit I gave United some financial information. The commercial loan officer who knew one of the MINORITY stock holders informed them about company business and shared the financials and discussed other items to which that shareholder was not entitled to know about. I was about to merge all three of our branches account business there as we at present only have the account for one branch at united. I cannot be assured that my account information will be kept confidential so now because if this unethical breech I am closing the existing account and merging all three elsewhere. This is the second occurrence with the same bank officer with that shareholder. Shame on him!
