New: An easy way to report Social Security scams!
At the behest of Congresswoman Susan Collins (R-ME), the Social Security Inspector General’s office (OIG) has released a new online tool to report Social Security phone scams as well as suspected Social Security fraud. In recent years there has been a spate of Social Security phone scams, where impostors call unsuspecting seniors trying to bilk them out of money or scare them into revealing personal information. We’ve reported on these scams many times at our website, and are pleased to now publish an easy online way to report such scams, which show no signs of abating. As always, the best advice if you receive an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be from Social Security, is to hang up – do not respond to the caller in any way. But now, you also have an easy way to report the event to the Social Security OIG to assist them with dealing with this nefarious and intrusive activity. To be taken directly to the Social Security tool for reporting Social Security scams and suspected fraud, click here.
