Social Security Scams
Apr 17, 2019   08:37 PM

The Nationwide wave of Social Security imposter scams has reached Tom Green County. Claiming to be a government authority is a way that scammers trick people, often senior citizens, into sending money.  In the past few months, Social Security imposter reports have greatly increased. The Inspector General of Social Security is warning citizens about a caller-ID “spoofing” scheme misusing the Social Security Office of the Inspector General’s Fraud Hotline phone number. OIG employees do not place outgoing calls from the Fraud Hotline 800 number.  Citizens should not engage with these calls, provide personal information, or send money to the caller via pre-paid gift or Visa cards.
