a flood of scam callers claim to be from Social Security

ss scam callers

The screen shot reflects some of the calls we received on the Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources mobile phone yesterday afternoon. Note that the 800.804.8167 and the 210.405.6186 callers are repetitive ones. Both the numbers are scam callers purporting to be from “Social Security.”

In both cases, we let the calls go to voice mail, here’s what the messages sound like.

Remember, if you “you get a call from an unknown number. You answer only to find yourself on the receiving end of a threatening message saying your Social Security benefits will stop immediately unless you provide your personal information. It happens every day to thousands of Americans.  And it’s not Social Security calling.”

The Federal Trade Commission reminds everyone, “This is what a Social Security scam sounds like.”
