Tips to Avoid Social Security Scams


It’s natural that Americans want to be in good standing with the Social Security Administration (SSA). No one wants to owe money, lose their benefits, or face other troubles.

This is why Social Security scams are so successful. Criminals prey on the trust people have in these agencies and the fear they feel when they believe a legitimate problem is occurring.

Luckily, there are some signs you can use to tell if an SSA call may actually be a scam. As mentioned here, the SSA will never call and demand money or information. They’ll most likely contact you through the mail. If you’re ever unsure about a situation, hang up and call the SSA directly.
