Scam of the Week – Social Security Card Suspended

Alright, this one has been hitting my home phone number multiple times this week. Based on the voicemail message, it appears that my social security number has been deactivated due to fraudulent activities.

The Social Security Administration office will not call you regarding issues about your social security number. If they do contact you, it would be via postal mail, and you would have multiple ways to verify that the mail came from the real Social Security Administration offices.

If you end up speaking with the caller and they state that your Social Security number is at risk of being deactivated or deleted, be cautious. The caller may provide a phone number for you to call to resolve the issue. People should be aware the scheme’s details may vary; however, you should avoid engaging with the caller or calling the number provided, as the caller might attempt to acquire personal information.

For more detail, take a read at the following article from the Social Security Administration office.
