Social Security phone scam circulating

Idaho Falls-Bonneville County Crimestoppers is warning of a new scam, involving people pretending to represent the Social Security Administration.

According to the group, callers claim there has been suspicious activity on your social security number. The scam call may even appear to be a valid number for Social Security on your Caller ID.

Posing as a Social Security Worker, scammers will ask for personal information or payment.

If you have provided information to a scammer, take identity theft protection steps right away. Those include checking your credit report and issuing a credit freeze with credit bureaus.
