Scammers are now going to the federal Social Security website and setting up a “my Social Security” account of citizens that are of retirement age.
They hijack their accounts by setting up the accounts before the Social Security number owner does, and then they apply for funds.
The scammers request a lump sum payout be transferred to their own accounts, then they withdraw the money and immediately buy gift cards. Beat scammers to the punch by setting up your own “my Social Security” account today.
Be a fraud fighter! If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
