Scam Alert – Social Security Number
“We found some fraudulent activity under your name.”
Who calls in a seedy monotone machine voice to tell you there has been “fraudulent activity” attached to your name and social security number? Scam artists.
I’m posting about this because the fear-inducing voice is part of the scam. They want you to be so freaked out that you call them immediately and verify your identity by, wait for it… giving them your social security number.
Bottom line, don’t do it. And always – always – research the number and find information on something like this before you call. Chances are you’ll come across a post like this and save yourself a lot of trouble.
