Beware of a new phone scam that is targeting seniors recently. Scammers are engaging in a caller ID trick called “spoofing” to make it appear that they are calling from the Social Security Administration (SSA). These phony callers claim to work for SSA and ask for personal information—such as the individual’s social security number—supposedly in order to process a benefit increase. Please read the FTC warning–click here— to learn more about this latest scam and how to protect yourself.
