Don't Lose Your Money to Phone Scams
There are many variations of these scams, so be careful. What should you do? HANG UP!
Remember, no U.S. government agency (local police, FBI, IRS, Social Security, or others) will ask for payment by phone or ask you to purchase gift cards for them. If anyone tells you,“Your SSN has been linked to a crime...” or “The police are coming to arrest you...” or “Don't tell anyone, and don't hang up...” DO tell someone, and DO hang up, it is a scam!
