What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Social security robocalls are a frightening type of scam. You receive a robocall, and suddenly, an angry person on the other end is threatening you. It's the Social Security Administration, and they need you to provide some personal information because their computers are down. Or -- you were overpaid and you need to pay it back immediately. Or -- your check isn't coming until you give some information to the caller. These are all scams! These scams have successfully extracted millions of dollars from Americans. Social security scams are especially dangerous to seniors and people on disability. Many of these folks are entirely dependent on their SSA income, so it causes great panic to hear they won't get their check as expected. This panic unfortunately leads to making payments or providing information to scammers. Remember -- the SSA doesn't call people to request money -- end of story. Any call you receive from the SSA requesting money or personal information is guaranteed to be a scam. The SSA, like most US government agencies, prefers to communicate by written mail.

Social Security Scam
Caller Name: SSA

So my wife got the call today (from Jennifer Walker) a SSA agent telling her that her SS number had been found linked to drug trafficking, money laundering and several bank accounts under her name and that if she wanted to have her SS number cleared she would have to speak to a DEA officer (couldn’t get his name) after the call was supposedly transferred to this officer he asked how many credit cards and bank accounts she has, when we started to ask questions about where he was calling from he got very defensive and told us to not move from the house because he was going to send an officer to arrest my wife. After all this is a scary call to receive as they do make it sound real by adding that all bank accounts and credit cards will be frozen and that you will need a new SS number to get this whole situation cleared.

Caller Name: Scam/computerised female voice

Automated called saying I needed to call (855) 215-2221 as soon as possible, that this was "Social Security Administration". It started out "investigation", conveniently having the first part of the message cut off so I wouldn't be clear what it was about. I am on Disability so I believe this is a way to try to scam people, scare them into calling back.

Social Security Scam
Caller Name: 855-215-2221

I answered a call from a recording saying the SSA needed to discuss a matter and to call 855-215-2221. It was odd because the number that called me was from the same phone number I was asked to call. Upon calling, the lady mentioned my SSN had been compromised and used to set up credit cards, bank accounts, rent a white Toyota Corolla. She gave me a case number. I was also told that the car was found with 9-10 lbs of cocaine in it, and the fraudulent party was under investigation for money laundering and drug trafficking. She spoke very hurriedly the entire call and barely let me get a word in edgewise. She told me her name was Jennifer Walker (though spoke with a middle eastern accent), gave me her federal badge number (SSM3156219), and told me to look her up on Google as Jennifer Walker SSA. Well duh, Jennifer Walker SSA pops up saying she's with the Social Security Administration, but I can Google anyone and tell you I am them and include a bunch of personal info about them. The internet has all sorts of info on all of us, whether we like it or not. I told her it sounded like a scam. She had asked for my birth date, verification of my full name and address (that she gave), the last 4 of my social, asked how many credit cards I have, and how many bank accounts I have. She told me that she was going to forward my call to the DEA to discuss the matter further and destroy my current SSN. I told her I believed her to be a scam, and she got defensive and asked if I wanted my identity situation to be resolved or not. I asked to put her on hold, while getting the input of a friend, and the lady hung up. I called back just to see what I would get, and this time a man (middle eastern accent) answered and began to ask me questions. When I told him he was scamming people, he hung up. There you have it folks, don't be fooled by these people! I have notified police of the scam.

Social Security Scam

Automated call - claimed to be the US Social Security Department alerting me that my SS# had been suspended so I needed to call them right away at 855-215-2221. FYI: there is a warning about these scam calls on the Social Security website (ssa.gov) and a way to report them to the Office of the Inspector General (oig.ssa.gov) by submitting a Scam Reporting Form (secure.ssa.gov/ipff/home). Just sharing this info in case anybody needs it!
