Getting bombarded by scam calls?
used with permission from FTC.gov
by Jim Kreidler
The Social Security Administration (SSA) scam is the number one scam reported to the FTC right now.
As soon as a caller threatens you, or demands you pay them with a gift card or by wiring money, it’s a scam. Even if the caller ID tells you otherwise.
If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration, hang up the phone 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.
Watch this video to see how scammers use threats and high-pressure tactics to try to con you. Learning about scam calls makes them much easier to avoid. If you’ve received a call like this, tell your friends, family and neighbors about it. Tell them to hang up the phone and to report it to the Federal Trade Commission
