Beware of a Social Security Scam Phone Call

There have been recent reports of individuals receiving phone calls supposedly from the Social Security Administration. The phone call sounds something like this: "This call is from the department of Social Security Administration. The reason you have received this phone call from our department is to inform you that we just suspended your Social Security number because we found some suspicious activity. So if you want to know about this case, just press one. Thank you."

THIS CALL IS A SCAM. Do not press 1 on your phone. It is a robocall trying to trick you and is total baloney.

Whether it’s a call, text or email, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) debunk the falsehoods you’ll hear in the Social Security impostor scams.

  • No, your Social Security number cannot be suspended, revoked, frozen or blocked. If anyone tells you that, hang up immediately.
  • No, you don’t have to verify your Social Security number to someone who makes an unsolicited call to you.
  • No government agencies — not the IRS, SSA or Medicare — will ask you to wire money, send cash or buy gift cards as a form of payment. Never.
  • No, SSA employees would never threaten to have you arrested or send the police to your home.
  • Yes, the SSA may call you if you’re working with the agency on some issue or claim. But just to make sure it’s truly the SSA calling you back, hang up and call SSA’s main number at (800) 772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).
