People who know about scams are much less likely to fall victim to them.
We continue to receive reports of scammers pretending to be government employees. Scammers may contact you by U.S. mail, phone, text message, email, or message on social media to obtain your personal information or money.
Scammers frequently change their approach, trying new tactics and messaging to trick people. We encourage you to stay up to date on the latest news and advisories by following SSA OIG on Twitter and Facebook or subscribing to receive email alerts.
Social Security will never threaten, scare, or pressure you to take an immediate action.
Recognize the signs of a Social Security scam and report it.
