SOCIAL SECURITY SCAMS: How to tell the difference between a scammer and a genuine call from the federal government.

  • The government WILL NOT THREATEN to take away benefits or ask for money or personal information to protect your social security card or benefits.
  • Scammers can fake your caller ID, DON”T BE FOOLED, the call may seem to be from the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) real phone number or the SSA inspector general’s fraud hotline number. You can always call the SSA directly at (800) 772-1213
  • If someone calls you asking for your social security number, bank account number or credit card information….HANG UP!!!!
  • You can report social security scams to the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.GOC/COMPLAINT and to the SSA office of Inspector General Fraud Hotline at (800) 269-0271 or OIG.SSA.GOV/REPORT
