(SCAM ALERT):  SSA Employee Impersonation Scheme

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has a new warning.  Criminals are impersonating SSA employees in a scheme to acquire personal information from victims and using the victim’s information to re-direct bank deposit, address, and phone numbers with the SSA.  Beware of telephone calls with a “323” area code.
