Social Security Scam- Don't Give Your Information
BEWARE! Calls are being made by people who claim to be from a Social Security employee who states their name and ID. They say that your SS number has been tagged with drug trafficking and they need to verify your social security number so they can give you all information attached to your number. They tell you if you do not give them information your SS will be suspended. BEWARE of this scam and make sure you tell your loved ones not to fall for this.They are very convincing!
