Today’s discussion is about more phone scams. Today it’s the Social Security Administration. I received a call from the scammers, stating that my Social Security Number had been suspended. As I have said before I love phone scams. So I eagerly pressed one to speak to a representative told them my problem. And was promptly hung up on. Social Security will usually contact people buy mail. Before any phone conversation takes place. They will not call you. Most of the time, from your area code. And most of the time. You will know the call is coming beforehand. Important things to remember during one of these calls: One, do not give them any information. Especially not your Social Security Number. Two, report any fraudulent activity to the Social Security Administration, Office of the Inspector General. Three, the easiest way to handle one of these phone calls is just hang up. The Social Security Administration will never threaten anyone. I have been dealing with them for years, and they go out of their way to work with people.
