Great Southern Bank Warns of Scam Through Phone Calls, Text Messages

SPIRNGFIELD, Mo. – Great Southern Bank is warning its customers and non-customers alike of fraudulent calls and text messages seeking personal information.
SPIRNGFIELD, Mo. – Great Southern Bank is warning its customers and non-customers alike of fraudulent calls and text messages seeking personal information.

According to Brian Eaton, communications manager at Great Southern, the calls and messages appear to be from the bank stating that the customer’s Great Southern Bank MasterCard is locked.

The text message includes a phone number to call, which then prompts the customer to enter the 16-digit card number.

Eaton reports that the calls and messages are phishing attempts and urges anyone who is contacted in this way to hang up immediately or ignore the text message.

“These calls and messages are phishing attempts and are not being originated by Great Southern Bank,” says Eaton in an email. “We would never contact our customers in this way. They appear to be going to Great Southern customers and non-customers alike, though they appear to be from Great Southern.”

If you believe you have become a victim of this scam and provided any personal information, you are urged to contact Great Southern Bank immediately at 800-749-7113.
