Don't fall for it! Social Security scam makes the rounds again in KC Metro

March 15, 2018 - 12:40 pm

A phone scam is making the rounds again.

Greenwood police say they've heard from residents that they've gotten calls from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration.  

This is how the scam works: They leave a message on your voicemail, claiming your social security number has been suspended and asking that you return the call and speak with a paralegal.  

Do not give out any personal information.  Don't even call them back.

Anyone who receives one of these calls should notify the real Social Security Administration's inspector general.
