Consumers in eastern South Dakota targeted by phishing scam

Sioux Falls, Jan. 6 – Consumers in eastern South Dakota have been targeted by a phishing scam in a fraudulent attempt to gain access to customer account information.
The scammers are targeting all consumers – not just CorTrust Bank customers. There has been no security breach at CorTrust Bank. The scammers have gathered phone lists and are utilizing the list to send out the fraudulent messages using the CorTrust Bank name. The email or text requests personal and account information. Be aware and do not respond!
The scam seeks information similar to below:
Your Debit Card has Been Locked – Please click to respond (this leads to the phishing site). Do not respond.
If someone clicks on the site they are directed to a spoof Web site that mimics a bank Web site. In some instances, the site then shows as Bank of America Mobile Banking. The site requests customers enter their user id and password. This will direct you to another page that asks you to enter information. Do not enter any of the information requested.
