McCone County Su- perintendent of Schools Nita Crockett shares, Social Security warns otphone scarn Officials have become aware of reports of fraudulent telephone ' calls from individuals claiming to represent the Social Security Adminis- tration (SSA). In them, unknown callers are using threat- ening language to warn unknowing victims that they will be arrested or face other legal action if they fail to call a provided phone number or press the number indicated in the message to address the issue. In some instances, these unknown callers switch tactics and com- municate that they want to help an individual with activating a sus- pended Social Security number. Such calls are a scam, and are not coming from official SSA representatives. Officials encourage you to inform your members and extended networks not to engage with such callers, and to report any suspicious calls to Social Security’s Office of the Inspec- tor General by calling 1-800-269-0271 or submit- ting a report on the OIG website.
