Meridian police say they were notified by a local bank of a scam targeting customers' debit card accounts.
Great Southern National Bank says it received calls from customers about an automated call stating their VISA debit card was compromised and cancelled.
Residents were instructed to press '1' to reinstate the card by keying in the debit card number, expiration date and card verification number.
Great Southern stresses that it will never solicit your personal information over the phone and that you should never respond to such requests.
The bank says if you did provide this information in error, please notify the bank immediately by calling
601-485-0949 during business hours or 1-800-528-2273 after hours to cancel the card.
