Social Security Administration scam warning issued

Attorney General Ken Paxton warned Texans to beware of calls from scam artists pretending to be with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and attempting to fool unsuspecting people into giving them their Social Security number and money.

Crooks tell the would-be victim that their Social Security number has been used in a crime and they must pay a fee to reactivate it or to get a new number. During the call, the person is asked to give out their Social Security number. See the Jan. 10 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald to read the rest of this story.
