Social Security Launches New Public Service Announcement Campaign to Fight Scammers

March 6, 2020
Source: Social Security Administration (SSA)

The Social Security Administration (SSA) launched a Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign as its latest effort to warn about the ongoing nationwide telephone impersonation scam. In the video, Commissioner Andrew Saul explains how to recognize a scam and how to report it. The scammers play on emotions like fear to convince victims to provide personal information or payments in cash, wire transfers, or gift cards. Fraudsters may also email fake documents to try to get people to comply with their demands.

If you receive a suspicious call or email:
1. Hang up
2. Do not give money or share personal information
3. Report the scam to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG)
