Police warn of social security scam

Social security scam

GREENWICH, CT (WFSB) – Police are warning people that their social security numbers were not suspended and calls about that are a scam.

Officers in Greenwich released a public safety announcement about the scam on Monday.

They warned people to:

  • Not trust their caller IDs.
  • Not to give out social security numbers or other personal information over the phone.
  • Not to send money. Scammers often request funds through Western Union or gift cards.

If someone becomes a victim, police recommended calling the Social Security Administration directly at 1-800-772-1213 or visiting the website
