Recently, BankSouth has been made aware of scammers who are notifying unsuspecting individuals to tell them they have won money. In an actual recent incident in Greensboro, the fraudsters convinced the victim that in order to collect the money, they should share their personal online banking information in order to send them their winnings. Armed with that private sign on information, the scammers ultimately attempted to access and steal funds from the victim.
We strongly encourage you to NEVER offer your private sign-on credentials to anyone over the phone or over email! Change your password frequently and/or use secure password manager software for your own protection.
