  1. I got a call about a cancer dna screening . I talked to a woman about it because my twin sister had breast cancer. What should I do?
    The # was 0114704440350

  2. This is great information. If I had realized my own family would do these things. I thought I raised them better.
    What in the world makes a grown child think they are entitled to my future? Or the funds their Father put away for my survival after his death. It cost me dearly I no longer have money to give them so I am of no use to them. I miss my Grandchildren.
    Thanks for you time

  3. I agree esp after re 15 years of ID theft but because of that I am unable to get into my SS acct & extremely handicapped in getting info

  4. I got scammed on both my disability SSDI and SSA retirement checks, losing thousands of dollars over 7 years (identity theft, bank cards stolen, $ wired by fraud from bank accounts in White Plains NY. I know who did it, I got orders of protection, but it didn’t stop him from stealing from me over & over bc he was a computer hacker. I reported it to the Banks security, the WP police, DA’s office, but never got any $$ restitution as a victim. No one helped me recover the stolen monies. The man went to jail 5 times, but my money that he deposited into his 401k at People’s Bank was never refunded me. I need help getting $55k back ASAP! 9/30/19

  5. I didn’t get to raise money from sis since because. I am 70 year old so been got retired and ss disability for 14 year my sis number

  6. I understand the importance of bringing down scamming operations but why are we not stopping Government agencies from getting into our trust fund which is a mandatory tax .What can we do to stop this problem.? Isn’t Government scamming us$

  7. I have received numerous phone calls saying that Social Security was going to sue me. I always hang up, but it seams to me that YOU have their phone numbers and it should be incumbent on you to go after them.

  8. I got a call & te text to call re my Social Security, very important & this was the 2nd notice

  9. I heard people scamming Social Security disability by using their spouse’s or someone else’s Social Security number to work.

    Another scam is retire seniors on Social Security retirement selling or giving their Social Security number to an illegal immigrant for them to work. They put a credit freeze on all their credits so the illegal immigrants can’t get credit cards and loans in their name.

    While the illegal immigrant is working, their Social Security checks increases each year due to an increase in the PIA average. Their earning from 30 years ago while they were making $3.25/ per hour minimum wage will be replaced by the new wage.

  10. All I know is the American people ought to stand up and tell all of the government to PAY BACK WHAT HAS BEEN STOLEN FROM US, WHO WORKED FOR THE MONEY and plan to retire on it!! NO ONE HAD OR HAS the right to take OUR money!! That is jsut a disgusting move on the part of those that are guilty of such evil!

  11. Got a call from (888) 200-9801. Had my phone take a message. Robotic voice said something about fraud and I should press 1. Glad I didn’t pick up.

  12. I had to switch bank accounts due to a hack. Chase, my bank said it was taken care of but I have not received my SS check for 2 months.

  13. I got a call this week. They said someone was using my social security number. I need to get in touch with them.
    I’ve also gotten the “will be arrested one” For owing taxes, ECT. I’m in jeopardy losing my ssid .When it’s a robotic call, I forward to block asap.
    Plus I do my taxes every year. I don’t have ssid as of yet. Been denied 3 times. I desperately need it too.This makes me so upset when people scam like this. I need an operation on my back, slipped, budged, stenosis, nerve damage. Cant do much of anything for more than 15, 20 min. They told me, I can go back to doing hair again. I wasn’t doing hair!!!. I’m so poor, I don’t qualify for anything. I’ve worked all my life, I’m 56, and have all my work credits. Couldn’t collect unemployment, because I was working for salvation army, as a advocate for Domestic abuse.its non-profit.. I love helping others, but can’t help myself I’m not so depressed I don’t leave the house. Maybe once or twice a month. And here these people are able to scam others, get away with it and excel. I’m not one to hurt others, but how messed up is this world? I don’t even want to be in this world any more. There’s more bad than good. Evil. If they want it, they know to get it. There’s no such thing as cyber protection. It’s come to far, to control it.
    Thanks for taking time to read. Had to vent!

  14. Not everybody has a computer or laptop (believe or not). If they receive a scam phone call, who do they call with the information that was requested?

  15. People Social Security number don’t pay much on the dark market. They only get $1 on the black market.

    Financial credit card institutions know where you live if you have a credit card. They know that they will never be able to sue you for the money sending the credit card to a PO Box you don’t own.

    I had a friend whose brother did 5 years for identity theft. When he got out, he went back to the same thing. He steals people’s mail and gets their Social Security number.

    Your Social Security number use to be on your Medicare card, but Medicare doesn’t use it anymore. What they do is steal the Social Security statement telling you how much you will get every month toward the end of the year. At the beginning of the year, they steal the 1099 that Social Security mails to everyone. They also steal their employer W-2 and 1099 that is mail to them.

    They steal the pre-approved credit card applications that is mailed to you and fills it out with you Social Security number and address and untraceable prepaid phone number to activate the new card. They mail it off and wait to steal the new credit card mailed to you.

    They have state of the art printers to make fake IDs. They heat and remove the hologram off the real identification card.

    These robo calls are usually to extort money from you, not steal your identity. They want you to purchase prepaid debit cards and give them the card information. You have to be really dumb to do this.

    The next stupid thing you can do is getting a money order and sending it to them. They don’t want personal check. The funds are prepaid for the money order. They can cash it anywhere including the Quik Stop Mart.

    If they do get your personal information and Social Security number, then they will call you back later and try to extort money from you with the information they have. They will threaten to steal your identity or come after you if you don’t pay.

    Social Security hasn’t help seniors protect their Social Security number with the statement and 1099 form they mail each year.

    These criminals are not robbing the master key from the mailman just to steal tax return and welfare checks. The want the 1099, W-2 forms, and preapproved credit card applications.

  16. I went my local Social Security ofc recently bcuz of phrase calls…reporting I had my #compromised.NOT….just baked and deleted msg

  17. I went my local Social Security ofc recently bcuz of phrase calls…reporting I had my #compromised.NOT….just blocked and deleted msg

  18. There are so many “scammers” out there now that I have become paranoid of a lot of the mail I receive From bake ads on TV, in magazines, phone calls (which I don’t answer unless I am familiar with the number or person). Just yesterday I received a small folded card stating 2020 Medicare Update, and it wants me to send part of the card back to “National Processing Center” in Myrtle Beach, SC. It is about New Coverage Benefits available and asks for information about Medicare Advantage plans with Extra Benefits. Is this legitimate? How are we to be sure? Just in case, I am NOT sending it back. Will I be missing out on something good? I have no idea.

  19. Hello, my name is Kevin Smith and I have been scammed and my entire phone has been hacked/compromised by hacking my best family friends Messenger and FB and these scammers are using using the IRS as well as a Federal Grant employee program whom stated that I qualified for a 45k Federal grant but stated that it would cost me $1200.00 and that I would receive this “so called” 45k 24 hours. Can you please help me as well as to know if there is a way to get my money back..??

  20. I think the biggest scam senior on Social Security will face is the Medicare-For-All proposed by the Democrats. They already said that everyone will pay more for it. Senior will like see higher increases in Part B premium. What ever COLA they receive will go to pay for Part B premium increases. We have to vote the Democrats out of office. They are a danger to our Medicare.

    The Democrats want to fix Social Security by raising taxes. Raising taxes won’t fix the problem we have of them borrowing our Social Security trust fund and not paying it back. They will not have to pay back the money they already borrowed and will keep borrowing more money from it since they now have more money to borrow.

    • I don’t think there’s any doubt that this card came from some insurance company that handles Medicare Advantage plans. It’s sales ploy, and nothing else.

  21. I received a call today from someone who said my social security was being stopped unless I called: 551 306 3166, no name. Now I am sending it to you.
    I wasn’t born yesterday so I know it’s a scam, and now you know too.

    Thank you,

  23. I recieved a call from 407-605-3659 claiming to be fromthe social security crime investigation unit. he told me that he needed me to send him $200.00 to clear up the mattter. i asked him how long he was planning to continue this scam and he replied ” for about another year”. then he told me that it was for charity. i told him to send me a letter. and he startedto tell me that he would have someone call me. i said “no, send me a letter’. he hung up.

    • I would prank call them back several times and say nothing. I don’t hide my phone number. They see my number and never call me back. If they call me back I just keep prank calling them over and over. This waste their time and ties up their phone line. I am retire and have nothing better to do. It is the same robo calls over and over and dealing with them ends it sometimes. The robo calls just keep calling you if you hang up. Then they change the robo call number, so your caller id blocking doesn’t work on the new number. Eventually a real person will come on the line when you answer and you can curse them out.

  26. October 2, 2019
    I received a robocall today purportedly from the SSA notifying me that my Social Security account had been suspended and that I was subject to being arrested.
    The telephone number was 800-955-4619.
    I know good and well that neither the SSA nor any other government agency makes robocalls to random people. Any business, notifications, etc., are done by mail and by mail only.
    That someone could be frightened by such tactics and could be scammed out of what is rightfully theirs is appalling. These people need to be stopped.

He took with his social security card and drivers license and went to a field office and the handed a letter back with the wrong name but the address was correct, except the zip code was off. I thought something was wrong so I went to the field office and ask to see the line supervisor. I show the letter and was told they would handle this and would get a follow up letter. We got two letters one with the correct name and address, and the second letter had the wrong name and our address but the zip code was a little off. The name in the second letter was the same name of the first letter my son brought homs. I work as federal employee with Ssa for over ten years.

    • Hi, Mike. In May 1997, SSA started delivering Social Security on the 3rd of the month and on the second, third and fourth Wednesdays of the month. The three new payment dates are assigned based on the beneficiary’s day of birth. Beneficiaries entitled to Social Security benefits prior to May 1997 continue to receive their benefits on the 3rd of each month. For future pay dates, you may find our Schedule of Social Security Payments useful. Thanks!

  38. It is obvious that Congress needs to do something, now about these calls, They make them because they steal lots and lots of money. The people that believe are from other countries and think a phone call from a government entity has to be followed and people who are falling into dementia, of various types, and people who can’t or don’t read. It may help to run announcements on television and chase some of the callers down, like on 60 minutes.

  50. Got a call from 2812413100 this morning western time. I realized it’s a scam that’s why am reporting this number.
    Hope you can do something about this scammers. Publications and communications helps but a lot of senior citizens are not aware of this and they get scammed.
    Is there a way the FBI or another government agencies can act on this? It may not be eradicated completely but at least reading that something being done or measures implemented to protect senior citizens would be of great help.
    Thank you.

  55. My problem is that I am actually *waiting* for a call from the SSA in regard to SSI benefits (I recently won my medical appeal), and I got a call from 219-209-3474 claiming that this was their final attempt to get in touch with me. I called them back, but instead of giving THEM information, I *asked* for my information–because Social Security should know SOMETHING about me if they’re calling my registered phone number, right? And some guy with a foreign accent spouted off an address that’s almost 20 years old–something ANYONE could Google. Since I have an open case and I have received recent correspondence, I *know* that you guys have my *current* address.

    But I am still frightened to death that I might have made a mistake and hung up on the Real SSA. 🙁

  56. I received a call about 15 minutes ago from the ‘Social Security Administration’ claiming there had been fraudulent activity on my number. The first thing they asked me for was my ssno and birthdate. When I said no way, they hung up. The phone number was: 1 410 883 0997.

  66. Have gotten numerous calls today from Islip, NY
    6314812390. I also got one earlier from California, but deleted it already. They all leave a voicemail stating to call the Social Security at the number they called from. I assume the are a scam. I’ve gotten about 8 today.

  67. I have received numerous phone calls in the last 2 days informing me that my SSN has been closed due to fraudulent activity and that I need to speak to the police officer in charge. 1 call was received on my Onstar (which no one has this number) and a couple from from Texas 469-859-2824, 469-955-0186 and 469-964-1818. I have blocked all of them since I assume they are scams.

  68. I have received these calls and calls from the irs last week was so social security! Get a phone locker I am so tired of robo calls even with a Do Not Call number between them and time share I am so tired of these people not honoring a Do not call number!
