Phone Scam Alert

scam

We have received a number of inquiries regarding the Social Security Office, due to individuals receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration. The caller states you need to phone a number back, due to your card being "revoked".   THIS IS A SCAM

A rule of thumb should always be, never provide personal information to anyone phoning you.  A legitimate business will not ask for this information over the phone and they will not ask you to verify by providing the information.   To help understand this scam, please see the link here:
