Protecting Your Identity From Theft
Identity theft can wreak havoc on your finances and your credit history. Generally, the criminal will illegally apply for credit in another person's name and run up large bills — leaving the victim with the hassle of sorting out the confusion with creditors.
If you suspect that your personal information is being misused, act quickly. Here are some steps you should take:
Report any fraudulent activity on your Southern Bank accounts and any unauthorized transactions to your local branch.
Report any fraudulent charges on your Southern Bank credit account at 1-800-441-7461, or contact the issuers of any other cards.
