First Horizon Bank is warning customers about phishing text messages that attempt to obtain personal information, according to a news release from the bank.

The text messages include a slight variation of the bank's name and typically mention a problem with the customer's account or information about an account being locked.

Once customers click on the link, they are asked to provide personal information, including their account username and password, according to First Horizon spokeswoman Robin Derryberry.

However, First Horizon says they will never ask for personal information and are encouraging anyone receiving a text like this to delete the message immediately.

The bank has received several calls about the issue, which seems to indicate a large number of customers are receiving the text messages, Derryberry said.

If the link has been accessed, customers are asked to contact 1-800-382-5465 to ensure their account is safe.
