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: Fake Social Security money extortion scam call from India.

This is a fake Social Security scam call by criminals phoning from India, threatening to sue you or arrest you for fake arrest warrants. The call starts with a pre-recorded robotic female message, but then you are transferred 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 IRS, Social Security, 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. 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 IRS officers collecting on "unpaid back taxes", fake bill collectors threatening you for overdue bills, pretending to offer fake health insurance or Social Security services, 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 also try to gain your trust by looking up the name associated with your phone number and asking for a person 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 scam. 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 and giving them fake credit card numbers and personal information. 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.

Social Security Scam
Caller Name: Social Security

Left a message that I should call Social Security.

December 4, 2019

Got a message saying there was a freeze on my social security benefits (I don't collect SS benefits) because of an FBI criminal probe and I should call back immediately. So I did, just to tell them that I was going to report the number. I got a call center in India. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER. The social security agency will NEVER send you a robo call to tell you your benefits are frozen. And I don't even know if your benefits can be frozen because of a criminal investigation, but it seems unlikely unless the investigation is regarding fraud on the SSA.
