Great Southern Bank issued the following announcement on Oct. 4
Recently, there has been an increase in reports of social security fraud. In this scam, individuals receive a phone call or a robocall from a number that has been spoofed to match a government or other business number. The phone number makes it seem legitimate, but be wary. The Social Security Administration will never call you and ask for your social security number. They will not ask you to pay anything, and they will not call to threaten your benefits. So while your caller ID might show a real agency or company phone number, it is not them calling.
If you suspect that you are the target of a scam, hang up and call the publically listed number for the entity. You can also report the issue to the Federal Trade Commission by filing an imposter scam complaint online. Even if the call seems real, it is a good practice to never give your social security number to someone who calls and asks for it.
