Law enforcement is seeing a new twist on the Social Security Administration (SSA) scam. Check out this SSA imposter robocall, which says your benefits will end. (That’s not true, by the way.)
If you get a call like this, do not press 1. Instead, just hang up and remember:
Your Social Security number is not about to be suspended. The real Social Security Administration will never call to threaten your benefits. The real SSA will never tell you to wire money, send cash, or put money on a gift card. The Social Security Administration scam is the number one scam reported to the Federal Trade Commission right now. People filed nearly 73,000 reports about Social Security imposters in the first six months of 2019, with reported losses of $17 million.
