A federal government agency is warning of impersonation scams.
Jack Myers, Public Affairs Specialist with Social Security, indicates he has heard reports of scammers pretending to be from Social Security calling and demanding credit card numbers or personal information to resolve a conflict.
Myers says any official contact from Social Security will come by a letter in the mail. He reminds Social Security would never make any threats or would suspend Social Security Numbers.
Myers notes if you receive a scam phone call or fall victim to an impersonation scam, you can report it to their Office of Inspector General.
