Another scam - from the Social Security threatening suspension

Postby Hanna » Tue Sep 03, 2019 8:53 am

This is what the person said when I answered the phone. From the Social Security Administration the account has been "suspended.." this is as far as he went. I hung up.

Neither the IRS, nor any other government agency, not a bank not a utility company will call to announce a "suspension" or worse.

Besides, both of us get SS benefits and the caller did not address either.

As a matter of principle, when someone calls and is not asking for a member of the household, I hang up.

Yes, even when he says: grandpa? (or grandma) and mentions our name...

I get them from the Chinese Embassy. No idea what they're saying but they have background music. Nice touch.
Don't look at me, I just work here.
