When you receive a call or email from a scammer, there is one thing they’re are digging for: information. Information can range from a full name, email address, bank information, a credit card number and other personal descriptions. Unfortunately, gaining your social security information can be as simple as a phone call and Better Business Bureau (BBB) has recently seen a rise in social security scams in northern Indiana. “There’s somebody calling pretending to be an officer from the Social Security Administration,” said one northern Indiana resident. “The number they are giving is (859) 960-4874 and they’re talking with a heavy European kind of accent.” If you are unsure about a caller claiming to be an SSA employee, hang up and call their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 to verify the issue.
