SCAM ALERT: Social Security Number Scam


the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Glen Rock NJ, Glen Rock Police have issued a SCAM ALERT:” I just received a phone call on my personal cell where the caller ID indicated it was the Social Security Administration. A recorded voice told me there was a problem with my SSN and I needed to speak with an agent in order to prevent suspension of my benefits. I was transferred to a male with a foreign accent.
These scams are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated. Please educate yourself, family and friends. Education is the only way to avoid these scams. Be very very wary of any unsolicited calls asking for your personal info. Call the GRPD with any questions if you’re unsure.”

  1. Glad to see this posted.
    Caller id is always “spoofed”.
    The do not call list is useless , as is per call blocking
    With voip it’s impossible to trace.
    However if the phone companies cooperate, simple software can stop it ASAP since 1000s of these calls come in at the same time

  2. Let’s pick on old people.
