Note that I reported this back in March, glad NYS followed through. Much like scummy telemarketers they are spoofing several SSA phone numbers in an attempt to use it as a scare tactic.
State issues alert on scammers impersonating Social Security Administration employees.
The New York State Division of Consumer Protection issued a consumer alert over scammers impersonating Social Security Administration employees trying to steal personal information.
The division announced the alert in a news release on Wednesday. Impersonators ask for information such as someone's Social Security number, date of birth, their mother's maiden name and bank account information in most cases, the news release said. https://auburnpub.com/news/local/state-i...d99584f1a1.html
