  1. Francine Rivera 10 09 1978 *** – ** – *** take 1000, dollars from the music people every month and put it in my purse account so when I have offsprings they each will have a check without having to go into the system with the Administration of children services, making me furious and giving me anger problems. Zioncosamperez@gmail.com I will have all offSprings with my twin because is less problems and is easy to love my own biological twin and stay with him. I don’t have no food to eat and my check is not good enough to give me food throughout the month nor is my food stamps good enough to give me food throughout the month I need a raise

  2. I working in this country for longtime when i was with out paper legal immigration in the temp agency for nothing $5 an hour on 1992 now I’m been suffering with depression i apploy for benefits i have no money from social security administration.those temp agency never paying taxes to ssa i lost all my benefits since i was working that’s is fraud.

    • You had no papers! It is Illegal for you to work ,thus you have no right to complain or collect. They owe you nothing.

  3. My husband and I keep getting calls (sometimes 2–3 times a day) from a provider of back braces insisting that we accept the brace and that Medicare will pay. EVERY TIME I tell them when my doctor tells me to get a back brace, I will. In the meantime they are to leave me and my husband alone. Next day, another call or 2 or 3. I feel this a rip off of Medicare.

    • Tell them that you will contact a lawyer if they continue ti call. Also tell them to take your name and number out of their system. It usually works, for me, to get rid of them.

  4. It is not uncommon for estranged or former spouses to harass their estranged or former spouse by submitting false Fraud Allegations allegedly committed by their estranged or former spouse. Sanctions and or penalties need to be applied to said estranged or former spouses who submit such false allegations. Many times payments are suspended during the investigation of the estranged or former spouse which cause the estranged or former spouse financial hardship and emotional distress. Yet, they may do this repeatedly with no consequences.

    • I agree whole heartily. However at some point and time due diligence should be able to depict the non-sense… I am a victim,& yes it can cause a hardship and stress.. So sad how this agency allows disgruntled individuals to use the systems to waste ink, paper,etc and man-power hours to continue this dysfunction at all cost. To conclude: It really leave many things to question when it come to the “Red Flags the create….. They actually report fraud so much that the Social Security Case Managers look at the Victim in disbelief because the Sick Ex-spouse control the System with their anger.. Truth be told….
      Appreciate Your Post

  5. I just was trying to get back into my social account and could not, I need help getting in because I submitted an online application.

    • Hi Keyoka, thanks for using our blog. Sorry to hear you are having difficulties accessing your my Social Security account. For assistance with your account, you may:

    • All Lies NO ONE CARES, OIG,CFPB,FBI, Attorney General LISA MADIAGAN, . All WASHINGTON GOV and IL Gov LOSING MY TO COURT FRAUD , NEVER MISSED A PAYMENT AND CROOKS PEIRCE AND JUDGES, Take EVERYTHING YOU WORKED FOR FOR.PERSONAL GAIN, Sitting here PARALYZED IN SHOCK, Injured TRAUMA Horrible NECK PERMANENT NERVE PAIN , living On Streets Why SELL MY HOME FOR PROFIT , THIS IS AMERICAN FOLKS AND CROOKS WIN.

  6. Ssa must be ripe with fraud. When I worked a perfectly healhy 21 year old said why do you work I never have to I just get ssa. Some Doctors will say disabled when the person isn’t. Some lawyers advertise daily that may scam ssa. Medical device companies back braces sellers say free from Medicare.

    When applied for ss benefits after working 47 years only two seniors at our ss service center. The office was filled with perfectly healthy 20 year olds who mostl likely never paid into ss applying.

    Please, please clean up this problem asap so ss doesn’t go bankrupt!!

    Thank you

    • Yes ,I’ve been in the SS office and have noticed the same. It’s sickening, I had to hire a lawyer to get SSDI after working 40 years and becoming disabled and was given a hard time. These young people wanting on ss after working 2 years or less with ” I’m afraid of coffee cups” syndrome is just wrong!

      • If they only worked 2 years they would not qualify for any benefits/money from SS. Please don’t complain on an issue you apparently haven’t researched. If you don’t pay in you won’t get paid out! Besides I receive disability payments and trust me SS will not go broke paying me.

  7. Thank you for your email, but I did not submit any fraud allegations to OIG,
    and even never knew, that such an action is possible.
    Kind regards,
    Anna Shmygelsky

  8. I receive a call from automated recording stating that I had been involved with some fraudulent activities through the SSA and that I needed to call a number with an area code that begins with (202) and I saved the message so that I could contact my States Attorney Generals office in hopes of tracking down these criminals because the SSA has never contacted me on such an area code.

  11. Well as RETIREE drawing social security benefits since I, became the age of 62 years old. now I, have reached the age of 70 years of age as of this year, The question am trying to find out is at my age am I, drawing the correct amount for social security benefits? surely I, will await a reply in this matter soon as possible

  12. Sir/Madam:
    First of all, thank you for starting and consistently keep running programs like this for people “LIKE US” who become very vulnerable due to Age-Factor. The dirty elements in the Society take advantage of their weaknesses and exploit them at the cost of their peace of mind.

    One of these problems is “Dementia” and “Physical Weakness” to do everyday work in and around the house. WE SOMETIMES FORGET TO TAKE MEDICINES & DO OTHER HOUSEHOLD REGULAR WORK. Sometimes we forget to eat our breakfast.

    I hope we have come to the right place.

  13. PLEASE WRITE TO ME HOW I MAY MAKE A COMPLAINT OF THEFT OF SERVICES?

    I was “BILKED” out of TEN days Money/BENEFIT
    and TWENTY-SEVEN days Money/BENEFIT
    by Hale House of Clarendon Street/Boston,MA.
    of THE HALE BERNARD SYSTEM in 2017.
    I entered Late in April.
    I was summarily “EXPUNGED”
    on November 3, 2018.
    That is 47 DAYS.
    FORTY-SEVEN DAYS.
    That they “stole” my benefit for themselves
    and I received no SERVICES.
    Also, when i was expunged i received NO HEARING, no legal rights, no representation. Just “KICKED OUT
    without any due process.
    Thank You for your HELP?

  14. Good evening Sir/Madam: My name is Samson O. Adeboye, and I am a DC resident. On September 12, 2018 someone called my homephone, and claimed to be the Director of Social Security Office on the voicemail he left for me. I suspected that the call which came from Sandy Spring in Maryland must have come from the fraudulent people. The phone number, as recorded by my coller-ID is 1-240-324-6938. The caller said that my Social Security number has been involved in fraudulent activities. My phone number is 202-484-0265. Thank you.

      • This guy just gave you info about a scam. I have received the same calls. Are you going to do anything about it? It seems that this is the standard reply as you have said the same thing to several respondents. Track these scam artists DOWN!!!

  15. I would love to make an appointment for a face to face visit. I cannot go there to make the appointment do to the fact I cannot drive. I cannot afford to live in general if we cancel my son’s social he is a full time student.

    cordially Lisa Ward

  16. Hi ; I submitted fraud December 2017 for my son . We found out do to a back ground check , that someone else has been using his social security number. He was born November 1999, the report goes back to 1986. We are just getting a run around. This is affecting his getting in to college, among other things. I have contacted social security. All they say is to go contact other agencies. I have pulled his credit . They say to report to police and contact IRS. I don’t understand why they won’t fix this? Can you offer any guidance?

  17. I received three calls from 239 230-0736 I didn’t recognize that number so the first two times I ignore it! When the third call came I answered and he identified himself as a representative from Social Security Administration and requested my social security to make sure he was speaking to the right person, of course I didn’t give them my number and so they told me my benefits would be suspended indefinitely! What does this all mean? Should I worry about getting my benefits?
    Thank you

  22. Received voice mail from Apopa, FL, Aerialink Wireless B/1Mobile, 407-358-6681. Message: “your social has been found suspicious for some illegal activities & it’s very time sensitive & urgent that I do hear back from you before we proceed further with suspension of your social & assets.” A woman with direct call back at 407-358-6681. When called it almost immediately directs you to voice mail. If you wait to ring thru, no one answers (20 rings). Very concerning. Pls get these people for preying on SS recipients.

  23. Got a fraudulent call from your Office in West Palm Beach this morning 800-772-1213 saying my social security has been suspended. It cam from your office.

  24. I received an automated call saying my benefits were being suspended due to illegal activity. I have no illegal activity and I don’t sleep walk and rob banks. The call was not from a ssa number

  25. Appx 10:30AM on 28 Nov 2018, I received a call from
    310-620-7928. It stated that my social security number was associated with illegal activities and to call them back immediately. I think this is a scam to get my personal information.

  33. I received an automated phone message yesterday on my home phone saying a social security number had been compromised – it did not state the name or social security number of the household member who was supposedly compromised. The caller ID said it was coming from Folsom.
    That call was followed up by 4 additional phone calls, all giving phone numbers they wanted me to call.

  34. I have received 2 phone calls from 262 477 9464 that left messages saying my ssn has been compromised and used for illegal activities and my assets will be frozen. I should call this number back to talk about the problem. I did not call because it was an odd number and it was from Kewaskum , Wi. Was I right to ignore the calls?

  35. I have gotten 3 calls so far telling me they detected fraud on my account and that everything is frozen . They asked me for my name and social security number . I gave them my name but not my ss# . I saved the phone numbers and the voicemails just in case. So how can I help catch these criminals?

Just a reminder – please be cautious about posting personal information on social media.
      We hope this helps.

    • Hi Dolores: If the caller is claiming to be from Social Security—it is critical that you pay attention to the tone and content of the message from the caller. In some cases, the caller states that Social Security does not have all of your personal information, such as your Social Security number (SSN), on file. Other callers claim Social Security needs additional information so the agency can increase your benefit payment, or they threaten that Social Security will terminate your benefits if they do not confirm your information. This appears to be a widespread issue, as reports have come from people across the country. These calls are not from Social Security.

      If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from Social Security, we urge you to always be cautious and to avoid providing sensitive information such as your SSN or bank account information. Never reveal personal data to a stranger who calls you, and never send the stranger money via wire transfer or gift cards.

      Social Security employees will never threaten you for information; they will not state that you face potential arrest or other legal action if you fail to provide information or pay a fee. In those cases, the call is fraudulent, and you should just hang up. If you receive these calls, report the information to the Office of the Inspector General at 1-800-269-0271 or online at oig.ssa.gov/report.

  50. I have been called by someone who has represented that there has been fraudulent activity on my social security number. They do not tell me my number or what the fraud is. They don’t mention my name either. When I try to ask a question they hang up. The number they call me from is (707)733-0566.They claim to be from the Social Security Fraud Unit.

  56. To Whom It May Concern:
    I have received three (3) telephone calls over the period from 3:19 p.m. Thursday 02/14/2019 and 02/15/2019 4:16 p.m. The robotic voice informs
    me that fraudulent actions have happened on my social security number. If I don’t contact a number, they will be taking legal action against me.
    The number I have been able to get off my caller id are as follows:

    Thursday, 02-14-2019: 1-800-269-0271 from Angleton, :
    Friday, 02-15-2019, 951-293-4004 from Perino, CA at 10:06 a.m.
    Friday, 02-15-2019, 951-293-4004 from Perino, CA at 4:16 p.m.

    On each occasion, the robotic voice informs me I must call the above listed number(s) or legal action will be taken against me.
    I have not answered these calls. Each time they have called, I have not been near the phone. They have left a message on my answer machine.

    I would appreciate it very much if you could take care of this matter. These calls are becoming very annoying.

    • Hi Dea. Social Security Administration (SSA) employees occasionally contact citizens by telephone for customer-service purposes. An SSA employee may call you in limited situations, such as if you recently filed a claim or have other Social Security business that are pending. In only a few limited special situations, usually already known to the citizen, an SSA employee may request the citizen to confirm personal information over the phone. If a person has questions about any communication—email, letter, text or phone call—that claims to be from SSA or the OIG, please contact your local Social Security office. You may also call Social Security’s toll-free customer service number at 1-800-772-1213, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, to verify its legitimacy (TTY number at 1-800-325-0778). Thanks.

    • Hi Patricia, thank you for letting us know. If the caller is claiming to be from Social Security—it is critical that you pay attention to the tone and content of the message from the caller. In some cases, the caller states that Social Security does not have all of your personal information, such as your Social Security number (SSN), on file. Other callers claim Social Security needs additional information so the agency can increase your benefit payment, or they threaten that Social Security will terminate your benefits if they do not confirm your information. This appears to be a widespread issue, as reports have come from people across the country. These calls are not from Social Security.

      If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from Social Security, we urge you to always be cautious and to avoid providing sensitive information such as your SSN or bank account information. Never reveal personal data to a stranger who calls you, and never send the stranger money via wire transfer or gift cards.

  98. Trying to report two separate voice messages from an unknown caller pretending to be an employee of the SSA stating suspicious activity using my SSN and the suspension of my SSN. The numbers are 914-895-6493 and 914-012-6676. SSA sent me to OIG, OIG sends me to FTC. Your online reporting form does not seem to be set up to handle these scam calls.

  99. To the OIG regarding fraudulent calls:
    I have been receiving recorded several calls, claiming to be social security and insisting I call the number back to find out about the “suspicious criminal activity and suspension of my social security number”. The recording says to return my call as soon as possible. (Haha! – NOT going to happen!) When they call, I don’t say a thing, just hang up as soon as I hear it’s “Social Security”. These are the 3 numbers I’ve received calls from the the number of calls:
    1. 800-798-5755
    2. 325-399-0661
    3. 817-345-7107
    I hope that helps you in your investigations!
    Thanks for all you do for all of America! I know it’s a complex system, but I so appreciate the hard work that many of you at SSA put into each day!

Yesterday, I received a letter from a different SSA office thanking me for notifying them of my change of address. No, I did not change my address. I’ve lived here over 30 years and do not intend to move. Today is Sunday, so I will call SSA tomorrow, but I am very nervous about all this. I found that I could block my personal info online and did that, but I am still very worried.

  174. This is to report a phone call received 6/14/19 at 9:00am advising my Social Security number was used fraudulently on the south border of Texas. Message is saved on my cell phone. Message received from Officer Amanda Barnes (202) 755-2366.
    This is NOT a report for SSA, but for a senior’s SSN. Do not know where it should be reported by phone or online.

  175. I received a call saying that my Social Security Number is being cancelled. They left a message on my cell phone. It was a man’s voice. They number he wanted me to call back is 323-218-7196
    I did not return the call. Thank you for your help

    • Hi, Loretta. Please be suspicious of unsolicited phone calls, or email messages. If an unknown individual claims to be from a legitimate organization, try to verify his or her identity directly with the company. Avoid providing personal information unless you are certain of a person’s authority to have the information. You can call Social Security’s toll-free customer service number at 1-800-772-1213, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, to verify its legitimacy (TTY number at 1-800-325-0778). You can also contact your local Social Security office. We hope this helps.

  183. Today, June 19, 2019,I received 4 phone calls from the telephone number 310-984-6589. The first 3 calls left a voice message saying I should contact them immediately to avoid court proceedings. I ignored those calls and deleted them from my call list. The fourth came and I answered ready to tell them to stop calling. When I said hello, the woman said she was calling from the Social Security office (in a soft voice). I said oh are you the Social Security office there was no response, then she hung up. I immediately called the real SS office and was advised to contact your office.

  184. I have been receiving calls from 1-877-319-0729 saying my ss# has been compromised. The caller ID says the call is from the US GOVT.
    I didn’t give any info to them & felt it was a phony call.

  185. There should be an easier way to report the phone calls that say they are from social security. I just got another from one of these #$@$^&$, so I called them back and told them that I gave their number to ssa and they hung up on me, maybe they will stop now.

  186. I have received a call saying my SS# has been suspended because of fraud.

The message tells us that there has been suspicious activity as fraudulent on our social security number and that our social security could be in danger and we should call 469-393-0073 immediately. Another call said his name was David (did not catch last name) and he reiterated the same type of message with same telephone #. We live in Ottawa County, Ohio, and DID NOT return the call.

  189. 7/01/2019, 10:44 A.M. Received call from someone as representative of SSA, stating that there is Fraudulent activity showing on my SS Card and if I don’t call I will have charges levied against me.
    It only took 1/2 hour to get the number of the office representing the public in these matters, glad it wasn’t an emergency.
    The number that called me was: 510 – 578 – 6910. I certainly hope this helps the cause, thank you for your time.

  190. I keep getting calls stating that there has been an unusual or illegal activity with my social security and this morning another call stating that my social security number has been withdrawn.
    I don’t know why that would be the case as I haven’t used the number anywhere.
    They give me a number to call, but it’s never an 800 number so I don’t call it. What should I do?

  199. Received a call from 18003250778 saying my Social Security was being suspended. I hung up, called that 800 number only to find it is the TTY number for SS. I was given 18007721213 to call and in turn given the 800 for the OIG and the on line address. If they are using the actual number for Social Security, I find that very disturbing. A lot of older people will fall for their scam. The one thing about their call, they do not address you by name so they have no idea who they are talking to.

  200. someone is calling me impersonating as a ssa employee telling me that some suspicious activity on my ss number.

  203. My husband and, therefore, I have been the victims of a scam. He unfortunately, charged funds and drew out funds in order to follow the instructions given. The Caller ID totally fooled him. This happened over July 11 and 12. He finally halted the calls today once they threatened that APD has an arrest warrant and were coming for him because he wasn’t going to pay more. We are embarrassed and sad for the money lost. What is our recourse at this point.

I don’t believe that SSA would operate like this individual was operating.

  221. Today I tried to log into myssaaccount for the first time in awhile. But after the first attempt, I received a message that since I tried to log in 3 times and failed my account was suspended. But I didn’t try to log in for 3 times. I did after this first attempt but i got the same message. I don’t know if someone else was trying to log in with my information. When I try to create a new id and password I can’t do it. I get a message that says my information is already there. Can you help me get back the ability to get into my account.

  225. Received a phione call from 866366*549 said his name was Lucus Spencer with Social Security administration Said my police report # is DNC701
    AWN# ssm4434
    Said there bank accounts in my name in Texas
    He said he was suspending my SS# and issuing me a new one

  226. I received a call from a 279-777-1394 which I was to late to answer, then another call from a similar # 279-777-1340 which I was able to answer. There was a recording stating I was a victim of an exposed social security #, it then gave me options to call another # which I didn’t have time to write down or to press 1. I pressed one and my call went right to a person who stated his name which I couldn’t really understand, a strong Indian or Pakistani accent, he then asked me how he could help me. I explained what the recording told me and he said I was a victim of a stolen SS# then he asked me my name, address, I told him I didn’t believe the call or him and that I was going to call my own local SSA office.. then he hung up on me!! What nerve of that spammer/scammer… I guess he didn’t want to play the game any further. I called my local office, then the O.I.G. for SSA but there were too many calls ahead of me, probably reporting the same scam calls so I came here to report the incident. I knew it was a scam call from the start, I’ve already heard of these scams from the local news, but wanted to leave the ph#’s and any info that I learned from the call.

  227. You make it difficult to report possible phishing scams.
    each dept. directs you to someone else. You need a hot line to catch these crooks.

  228. Hi I received a call with my recorded voice from 469-656-6039 after scheduling a callback when calling the 1-800-772-1213 number.

    Please confirm that this was actually you and that I did not compromise myself.

    Additionally, why does the social security office not have a better way of verifying identity over the phone especially when they are the ones saying beware of phone scams?

  229. I received a call saying my SS was being suspended due to unofficial communications. I need it to live on, so was it a scam or is it true. My SS number is *** – ** – ***. The number to call me is 386 4105825 or 386 8714584. Thank you—Virginia Baker

  234. I cannot figure out from the options above where to report this. I received a phone call from 800-681-2000, from, first a recording, claiming to be SSA. It told me to dial #1 to get a person, so I humored it and did. A man with a very thick accent answered and asked how he could help me. I told him they called me! He asked my name and SS#. I told him I thought that the only way SSA contacted people was by U.S. mail and I didn’t know if he was really who he was claiming he was. The next thing I heard: He hung up. He knew I was on to him and he wasn’t going to get anywhere with ME. I blocked the number.

  235. I have received several phone calls from people saying that my social security number is being used for fraudulent activities and I will become a defendant in a federal lawsuit.

I heard a lot of talking in the back ground as if it was a very busy office and then after less than 5 seconds the call disconnected. They did not ask for any other information other then my name. I suspect this was probably a scam attempt

  239. I received this call on my cellphone and I know Social Security doesn’t have that number ., So I’ll leave this number that was on my phone 516-218-1931. When I asked to whom they wanted to talk to they said big MaMa

  275. I have received 2 calls one last week saying my .ss number had fraudulent activity and would be stopped. Second call today said my number has been suspended due to fraudulent activity. Call today from Connecticut 18609228191 and I can’t remember the first number I blocked both of them.

  276. I received a robo call today from someone claiming my social security number had been compromised and I was to press 1 to speak to someone or call the number she gave me. I hung up and am writing this note.. The number listed on my caller ID was 213-808-0591,

  277. This is my second one as I did not get the check that I was told to get it. First, I got a letter from the Social Security about the payment and I was asked to contact the SS if I have any question. I called couple times and finally the Social Security administrator in Baltimore asked me to start buying a Gift card for $1500.00 to ensure my social security number is the right one and told me that he will send the check for $54362.00. I bought the Gift card and texted him and I was told from the company that I lost it as somebody already used it. He finally transferred me to another guy in NY and that guy asked me to buy another Gift Card for $250.00 and was telling me that I will get it the check after I buy the card. I bought the Gift card and texted him too and I was expecting to get the check but did not get it yet. I have also lost that $250.00 Gift Card. And when I asked him why did not send the check, said that I have to pay tax. As I told him , I normally follow the law and do the tax as well. Asked him to send the check and the paper for the tax and how much it is and where to send it but he did not send me the check and the papers about how much is the tax and where to send it.
    I first started the Gift Card in April and did the second one last month and yet did not get the check now. In our first conversation, I was told that I will get it soon, the check for $54362.00 buy did not get it. When I went to SS office in Silver Spring, they asked me to send you the message on line so that you can understand it. Hopefully you will understand what I said and will send me the check and the letter so that I can send the tax too, if needed.

  278. Received a call stating I had fraudulent activity on the southern border. The number was 1-800-566-0034. I did not reply and blocked the number. Was this appropriate procedure?

  290. I’ve received 2 phone calls in the past week from someone saying my SSN has been compromised and to call the SSA. Since I don’t answer calls from numbers I’m not familiar with, I let it go to voicemail. The caller didn’t identify himself by name or mention the person in our household to whom the call was directed. Also, he didn’t leave a number to call. I thought it was a scam so I deleted the call but thought I would let someone in your office know.

  291. I have received a call from social security that stated I have problem with my social security number. I called the return phone number back as 1-360-938-7446. Someone picked up the call and I asked them that their social security location and address. The two times that I called back with different people answered the call and give me different address of the social security locations. Thus, I assume it is spam call. If the social security has issue with our social security number or file, will we receive a formal letter from the social security office.
