Social Security scams are nothing new.
The newest scam that the Federal Trade Commission is warning seniors about is a robocall, warning the recipient that all their benefits are being cancelled.
The best thing you can do if you receive this type of call is to simply hang up the phone and report the scam to the FTC. The real Social Security Administration will never call you to cancel your benefits or ask you to send money.
