On March 19, 2010, Advanta Bank Corp., Draper, UT was closed by the Utah Department of Financial Institutions. Subsequently, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was named Receiver. No advance notice is given to the public when a financial institution is closed.  An assuming bank could not be located; therefore, the FDIC will fulfill its obligation to insured depositors by mailing checks for their insured amounts. Credit Card Operations will continue business as usual. All Credit Card customers should continue to make their payments as they have in the past. If you are an Advanta Bank Corp.
