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

Political robocallers are often legitimate calls from a real political campaign. Legitimate political robocallers aren't trying to scam you or get your personal information for nefarious purposes. However, even legitimate versions of political robocalls can be annoying. And of course -- scammers may use politics to their advantage, too. Like religious scams, political scams may use a "common ground" to lower your defenses. A shared political party is shared affiliation -- you're both part of the same group, so you aren't as suspicious as you should be. Be very wary of any political call that requests a donation -- especially if the donation needs to be in a strange currency like gift cards or wire transfer. If you want to donate to a political cause, dial up an organization directly. If a political caller is requesting a lot of personal information, zip your lips. They're probably a scammer.

Social Security Scam
Caller Name: Fake Social Security extortion scam call by criminals phoning from India

This is a fake Social Security scam call by criminals phoning from India, threatening to sue you or arrest you. Most of these SSN scams begin with a pre-recorded robotic female message, but this particular number directly transfers you to an East Indian scammer who tells you that your Social Security number has been used in a crime and they need your SSN and credit card "for verification purposes". The scam often tries to threaten and coerce you into driving to a bank to wire them thousands of dollars. These fake Social Security, IRS, and credit/loan scams either ask for your credit card number or want you to directly wire them money from a bank while they stay on the phone with you. Basically, it is an extortion phone call and these fake IRS and Social Security scams often bombard you with calls from hundreds of different phone numbers. The IRS and Social Security are actually required to mail you paper letters and they will never phone you like this, threaten to sue or arrest you, and demand immediate payment. More than 99% of all North America phone scams originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day ranging from fake pharmacies to posing as fake Social Security or IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance, car warranty and credit card consolidation services, posing as Microsoft or HP to say that your software needs renewal or they detected a problem with your computer, falsely stating that they installed ransomware virus on your computer and you need to pay them money, etc, and the scammers try to obtain your credit card or Social Security number and personal information. Some scammers try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for you by name when they call. Many India scammers phone you with an initial pre-recorded robotic female voice speaking English to disguise their foreign call center, but then you end up talking to an East Indian scammer when you take the bait and respond to the pre-recorded message. Scammers often either use disposable VoIP phone numbers or they spoof fake Caller ID phone numbers. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake Caller ID numbers these days. India scammers do not care about the U.S. National Do-Not-Call Registry and asking scammers not to call does not work. I love to toy with these scammers and keep them on the phone by pretending to be interested in their scam because many scam victims are the senile elderly. You do these scammers a favor by yelling at them and quickly hanging up. But you ruin their scams by slowly dragging them along on the phone call, pretending to be interested in their product or service, pretending that you are worried when they threaten you, giving them fake credit card numbers and fake personal information, and toying with them for at least 10 or 20 minutes to use up more of their time and energy so they have less time to deceive an elderly victim. Never trust any unsolicited call because they are mostly scams, and most scam calls originate from India. No other foreign country is infested with numerous noisy sweatshops filled with phone scam criminals.
