The Missourians who have received these scam calls report receiving a phone call from someone telling them that their social security benefits have been suspended and they must call back in order to fix the problem.
When consumers return the call they are asked to provide personal information that the scammer can then use to commit identity theft or other fraud.
The Missouri Attorney General’s Office warns citizens not to provide personal information over the telephone unless they are absolutely certain about who is on the other line. Anyone who receives a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Social Security Administration should hang up.
