We had just received a phone call, that I let the answer machine pick up, and it was a scam about Social Security. Minutes after on the N.B.C. news, they put up an alert about this actual scam. It was pretty much word for word, of our message. We of course did not phone back the number given.
It was saying about fraudulent activity on my Social Security, and if I didn’t call the number immediately, they would take legal action. I was given the number 202 854 0391 as a call back number. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER.
The news report said that on average when someone had picked up the phone, or called back, they were out of pocket $1,000.
I am sure most of you are aware of this, and many other scams. The newscaster told us to go to https://www.ftc.gov/ and file a report. The more information they get the better.
I did mine today.
