      The short answer to your first question is Yes…there are fraudsters and scammers out there hard at work to separate you from your hard-earned resources. On our Social Security Report website, we routinely post warnings and descriptions of new scams as they develop, along with routine warnings of what to look out for to protect yourself. Just open the site and use the search term “Scam” and you’ll see quite a few of these highly relevant articles.

      On your second question, there are limited situations where Social Security personnel would reach out to contact you. An article recently posted on our site explains it this way, “… there are only a few special situations in which government employees call people to confirm personal information, and you should already be aware that such a call is coming before it’s made. Most people will never get an official phone call from any government agency, as entities like the SSA and the Internal Revenue Service more commonly use mail for official communications.”

      In all cases, everyone needs to be aware of the simple truth that the days of trusting unknown on the phone are long gone.
