SOCIAL SECURITY SCAMS ON THE RISE
Have you gotten a call saying your Social Security number is suspended because of suspicious activity?
THIS IS A SCAM!!! The Social Security Administration will not call you, no matter what caller ID says.
Government employees will not threaten to take away benefits or ask for money or personal information to protect your Social Security card or benefits.
Scammers can fake caller ID. They are able to clone real numbers on caller ID.
If a caller asks for Social Security number, bank account number or credit card information - hang up!
Report suspected scams to the Social Security Administration Inspector General at 1-800-269-0271 or oig.ssa.gov/report
