Scam Call About Social Security Number: Scammers claim to be elected officials. They can assault you and request immediate payment in order to prevent arrest or other legal proceedings.
Social security will e-mail or email you to programs and resources, but never request an unknown number for a return call. And when you opt-in to receive them does social security send emails or text messages.
Scammers claim that your SSN was suspended due to suspected activities and/or the involvement in a crime. Often you want the scammer to confirm that you are reactivating your SSN. He will also say that he’s going to seize your bank account.
Oh, and when these scammers call, sometimes your caller ID will display the actual SSA number (1-800-772-1213), but this is a mistake. This isn’t the true call of the SSA.
