Beware of Social Security Scammers

A recent article by the Social Security Administration (SAA) is advising all to be on the lookout for fake calls, texts, and emails from scammers posing as government officials. These calls have been known to use fear to gain information by threatening an individual and demanding immediate payment to avoid arrest. These are NOT legitimate.

To help you prepare for and identify these calls, the SAA has released some helpful tips.
