IF YOU GET A CALL LIKE THIS, DO NOT PRESS 1
Instead, just hang up and remember:
- Your Social Security number is not going to be suspended
- The real Social Security Administration will never call to threaten your benefits
- The real SSA will never tell you to wire money, send cash, or put money on a gift card
- The real Social Security Administration will send you notices by mail
The Social Security Administration scam is the number one scam reported » to the FTC right now. People filed nearly 73,000 reports about Social Security imposters » in the first six months of 2019, with reported losses of $17 million.
Remember that 97% of all scams are never reported, so the FTC’s numbers and analysis is about 3% of the real level of scams.
So if you’re getting these calls, you’re not alone. Tell your friends and neighbors about this scam. Tell them to hang up the phone. And then to report it to the Federal Trade Commission » and to Anyscam.com »

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- U.S. State Police (if you live in the U.S.) – they will take the matter more seriously and provide you with more help than local police
- Your National Police or FBI « www.IC3.gov »
- The SCARS|CDN™ Cybercriminal Data Network – Worldwide Reporting Network « HERE » or on « www.Anyscam.com »
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
