A clearly automated voice claimed to be an officer with the Department for Social Security. It then prompts you to speak to a government agent in order to receive help resolving the issue. Download a Call-Blocking App Instead of simply being alerted to incoming robocalls, a call-blocking app can intercept robocalls before they reach you, says Mahoney of Consumers Union. Your bank account is not about to be seized. You can hear what the scam sounds like. What Government doing about it? In another version, the caller says your bank account is at risk due to the illicit activity and offers to help you keep it safe.

My wife lost 30K+ by these scam call, I was able to get in touch with them 2nd time by calling to say we have more money in the bank so that police can track, while the scammer on the call I went to police station and ask them to track it down now, they said they can't. Not a lot of money, but adding the lost revenue to the cost of fixing their system, it's not an attractive value proposition. There is no such thing as the Department of Social Security in the Federal Government; it is the Social Security Administration and it never calls you to tell you about legal proceedings or anything else. Are they talking in a heavy Indian accent? We expect participants to treat each other and the bloggers with respect. If you cannot handle your business through our automated services, you can speak to a Social Security representative between 7 a. So, get back to me as soon as possible. I feel stupid and I gave the the last 4 digits of my ssn and I really hope nothing happens! Or your bank account or credit card number.
