LETTER: Here’s how scammers steal your Social Security number

To Ozaukee Press:

A friend of mine got a telephone call from a person who identified herself as a Social Security agent and gave her name and ID number.

The woman stated that my friend’s Social Security number had been tagged with drug trafficking and that she needed to verify the number to clear up the matter.

The caller said the number would be suspended if my friend did not verify it.

When my friend protested, the woman said if she didn’t get the number, she would hang up and Social Security benefits would be suspended.

My friend said, “I guess you’re hanging up,” and she did.

The fraudulent Social Security agent was very convincing.

Here’s the number she called from: 254-781-0636.

Elderly folks, beware.
