Potential Phone Call Phishing Scam
December 12, 2018
We have been notified that there is a social security fraud ring targeting seniors in our market.
Seniors have received multiple robo-calls yesterday and today. The call is posed as though it is from Social Security and the first six digits of the caller’s number match the phone number of the Social Security Administration offices. The message notifies the senior their benefits are in jeopardy if they do not respond immediately. Social Security has verified that these calls are fraudulent. PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS MESSAGE!
