Have you gotten a call from the Social Security Administration recently? Did the caller tell you, your Social Security Number has been suspended? The caller told you a police officer would come to arrest you. BEWARE! Generally, Social Security will only contact you if you requested a call or you have an ongoing business with us. Last year, there were about 49 billion robocalls and people report losing millions of dollars. The Office of Inspector General received 478,000 reports of scam calls up to November 2019. Scams are real. During the next episode of Social Security…Securing Today and Tomorrow, Cristina Miranda, Senior Project Manager, Federal Trade Commission will tell us about the different scams going on, how you can avoid being a victim and how you can protect yourself from identity theft.
