Voicemail from (262) 457-7577
"Meant we need to talk to you as soon as possible. Again this call is from Social Security Administration number to reach department is 262-457-7577. I repeat it's 262-457-7577. Thank you."

I highly doubt this is from SSA and I'm sure it is a telemarketing or phone fishing scam. I didn't call back so I don't know but I do know the number for SSA is 1-800-772-1213.

SOCIAL SECURITY ADMIN DEPT SCAMMER CALLED - EVERYONE BEWARE, a Social Security scam is preying on senior citizens this year, AND I RECEIVED ONE OF THESE CALLS YESTERDAY. And if the caller claims you will face legal action, or be arrested, just hang up, don't give your information, and REPORTto the Office of the Inspector General at 1-800-269-0271 or online. Report it to SSA’s Office of the Inspector General, online or at 800-269-0271. REPORT IT WITH THE NUMBER THAT CALLED YOU. THE NUMBER THAT CALLED ME CAME ACROSS ON CALLER ID ON MY CELL PHONE AS THIS, "410-696-4338. IT WAS A RECORDING PROVIDING THE NUMBER FOR ME TO CALL BACK TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM. WHEN YOU CALL BACK, THEY TRY TO SCAM, TELL LIES, SAYING YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER HAS BEEN LINKED TO SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY AND SUSPENDED. The caller asks you to confirm your number so he or she can reactivate it or issue you a new one, for a fee. This is no emergency but a ploy to get money and personal data: Social Security does not block or suspend numbers, ever. 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. Their warnings are 100% fake. On the other hand, you might get a call from a supposed SSA representative bearing good news — say, a cost-of-living increase in your benefits. To get the extra money, you just have to verify your name, date of birth and Social Security number. Armed with those identifiers, scammers can effectively hijack your account, asking SSA to change the address, phone number and direct deposit information on your record and thus diverting your benefits. Warning Signs: •You get an unsolicited call from someone claiming to work for SSA. Except in rare circumstances, you will not get a call from Social Security unless you have already been in contact with the agency. •The caller asks for your Social Security number — again, something an actual SSA employee wouldn’t do. •A call or email threatens consequences, such as arrest, loss of benefits or suspension of your Social Security number, if you do not provide a payment or personal information. •Don’t assume a call is legitimate because it appears to come from 800-772-1213. Scammers use “spoofing” technology to trick caller ID. The person even offered a "badge number" and their first and last name, to make it sound official.

I got a call from 559-487-5402 and my caller ID said US DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION. It was a woman automated message about my social security number being locked if I don't respond to what they were calling about. It said to press 1 to talk to someone. I pressed 1 and I spoke with "David Miller" who was obviously from the middle East. He said his badge number is 3269J549 and he asked that I read it back to him to verify. He verified my address and then said that I have 7 allegations against my ssn. I have 25 bank accounts open and 3.8 million dollars that are stolen due to sex trafficking, drug trafficking, money laundering, etc. He asked how many bank accounts I own and then asked for the amount in each account. When he asked that, I got more suspicious and did some research. I asked him for a call back number and he gave me 1-800-772-1213. He asked if we could proceed with the call since now I have the number and I said that I need to verify that he this is a legit call first so I will do some research and then call him back. He started to get more aggressive and stated that this needed to happen quickly. I reasserted myself and even let him know that David Miller is not the name of someone with a middle eastern accent. I did give him the last four of my social so hopefully that isn't enough to do anything. Hoping it isn't anyway..

Just got a call from 800-112-1213 with an autogenerated message saying your SSN is suspended if you don't select 1. I knew this is a fake call and started talking :-). Then he said we are located in Baltimore and you can reach out to 800-772-1213 for details and need your First and Last name, Address, and SSN to verify the information. I told him why my phone number is on your autogenerated message and how did you get it. He said just give me your information first before I help you with that.

Im sorry but they called my phone and I didn't answer cause I did not know who it was. I don't answer numbers that I am not sure of. If they wanted to get hold of me they could have left a message. Unfortunately they did not. So I called the number back and They said the number or code was incorrect and I tried that a few times. IT's a scam. SS will always call you on a 1-800-772-1213#.

I hung up on the recording and called the office. They said it's fraudulant; they don't make outbound calls. Don't give the caller any info! The actual Social Sec.

Caller ID was 800/772-1213 so I picked up. Recorded message said my ss# was compromised and my benefits were compromised, to press 1 to talk to an agent. By this point, I knew it was a scam since a) I don’t receive any benefits and b) SSA always communicates by postal mail, but I was curious so I pressed 1. Guy answering introduced himself as being and agent but had to slowly read his own name, unsure of its pronounciation, so I laughed at his face, hung up, and blocked caller. Sadly, people may fall for this because 800 #s are not known for scam. Yet.

I just got a call from 1800 772 1213. It said I have criminal charges from ss# office. First of all that’s impossible. And to call that number to fix issue before they proceed with criminal charges. I’ve been to the Feds for 8 years. Don’t judge me we’ve all broke the law. Only some of us get cought. n e who. This had red flags all over. So I called using a google voice number which gives them another number. Guy answers I can’t understand half his words. His accent is heavy from his origin East Indian I’m guessing. Note I’m not races in any shape of form. However I am Mexican born In Cali. Henceforth he quickly demanded my full name. Ss#. And email or mail address. I asked if your ss office why don’t you just mail me a letter or statement. He’s getting mad now and tells me if I don’t believe him then call his desk toll free number 18007721213. And said hurry up!! I told him FUCK YOU BITCH I wish you where here in my face. And hung up. Excuses the language but these are scams.

I decided to call the school and ask who and why they keep calling me? I found myself connected to SSI and a recording about future payment rate changes of 2.8%. I assume a normal yearly COLA.
BTW, Emmott appears to be legit pre-K school in TX. So not only have they spoofed the number, they also spoofed what you get if you trace it. Bottom Feeders!

I got two calls today on my cell phone from the 800 772-1213, it was a recorded message saying my SS would be suspended for illegal actions in my state and to press 1 to speak to someone, I hung up. They called again about 4 1/2 later, this time I pressed 1 and they tried to get my information which I did not give them, I told them it was a scam and I'd contacted SSA, then I hung up. The problem is when you try to call SSA they put you on hold then in a few minutes they come on and say it's a busy time call back later. I sent an email but at this time (7 hours later) I have yet to hear from them.

I disregarded it, then a moment ago received a call from 800-772-1213 basically stating the same thing. It said "press 1 to speak with an agent" which I did. I was routed a man who was very difficult to hear and it sounded like he was in a room with hundreds of other people. I told him I couldn't understand him and he hung up. Scary thing is that does appear to be the correct SSA number so I'm not sure how they're pulling this off.

I keep getting calls from the 800 772 1213 saying there is a lot of specious activity on my ss and they are going to suspend it, i have blocked the number and they still get to my voicemail some how, I called the number back and it sounds like a legit ss office however they never answer the phone, this is a big scam right now.

Work 3rd shift woke up to check messages,text and had a threatening voice mail stating something about taking my assets.I looked up this number 1-800-772-1213 and it said SS Dept. So I thought it was real so called it back. It had a recording in the beginning stating information about SS changes the robata asked for my SS number and said no one available at that moment to take my call that I was in line and would take 1 hour on hold or I could receive a call back in the same amount of time,so I took that option. If this is a scam they have gone to far this time. Using the SS Dept actual phone number and threatening to take all your assets and then using SS actual number! Wow

I just got a new spamcall from 1-800-772-1213 which is the social security number but I don't believe a true social security rep would ever call from that number or call and not leave a message. Very suspicious-definitely blocking this number. I get 5-6 spam calls a day from random spammers-really tired of it.

I received a call initially from 800-772-1218 which HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED as suspicious. Then not longer after that, same day, I received a call from 800-772-1213 which I looked up and it identified as the SSA. Another call from 800-772-1213 was received this morning.

I've NEVER received a call from the SSA, I didn't answer any of the calls. There were not messages left and I'm blocking both numbers.

Received a call from 800-772-1213, which is a legit automated number for the Social Security Office. This is an obvious scam because the only way the Social Security Office calls you ever is when you actually request it. Plain and simple. If you rat bastard that are trying to scam people read this, I would love nothing more than to whip your candy asses, you pussy ass bitches!!! Go boil a rabbit, you sick fucks!!!

I recieved two voicemails on 11/27/2018 from 1-800-772-1213 (Social Security Administration Customer Service number) stating I needed to call them immediately before a hold on my "social" would occur. The voice was computer generated in both voicemails. The first voicemail stated to call 603-384-3301; the second voicemail stated to call 575-201-4826. I looked up the numbers online, people posted this was a scam and I have been asked to transfer their money to SSA from their bank to be safe. I did not call either number since this seemed like a scam attempt.

I received a call from this number 1-800-772-1213 saying that my benefits will be in jeopardy

Got a call from this number. It was a computerized voice. Apparently, my Social Benefits were suspended and would have been blocked permanently if I did not press 1. I suspect it to be a scam, although the Social Security website does mention 1‑800-772-1213 as their toll free number in this link: https://oig.ssa.gov/newsroom/blog/feb13-phishing-schemes
Anyway, there are ways to spoof numbers and I suspect the scammer used something like that. Do not give out your sensitive information over phone. Period. That is unless you know the number and you are the one who dialled in or requested assistance.

Scammers have called me 4 times claiming they needed me to respond due to suspicious activity related to my ss#. The number is the Social Security number, 800-772-1213. The person on the phone asked for information to confirm my identity. I asked for information to verify their identity. I was told to contact my local SS office. They hung up.

On Nov. 21, 2018, I got a call from 800-772-1213. It told me that Social Security was going to suspend my account because of suspicious activities. I pressed a number to be connected to an operator. Who ever answered the phone sounded like an elderly Asian immigrant working at a call center. I told him 'This is a scam. Why don't you 'fess up?' He hung up on me.

Got a robo call spoofing the SSA's 800 number ( 800-772-1213 ) on ATT Wireless.
The robo call was the 'your social has been suspended for illegal activity' type call.
- Yes, Social not Social Security Number.
I agree up the reports, you think the cellular provider would block this type of action.

Received a call from 1-800-772-1213 but did not answer. Voicemail was robot voice stating I needed to press #1 to speak to someone about suspected activity involving my SSN. Did not leave any info on how to contact them. I believe this to be SCAM.

This is a scam. The initial call has used the real Social Security Administration phone number (800/772-1213) on Caller ID. The voice is a computer voice that doesn't use correct grammar. You're instructed to call 804/457-6103 or your Social Security Number will be disabled.

picked up the call. A female robot is saying that "your social security number is suspended. Press 1 to speak to an agent". The caller ID, 800-772-1213, is a legit number published on Social Security website. It seems that those scammers found a way to pretend that they are calling from Social Security Department.

Just received a call from this number. Googled and found that this is the actual number for the social security administration but please be aware that a good scammer can make the number appear to come from whatever number they want. I hung up. If there is ever an issue with your social security number please call them directly and perhaps see if you can find a number on their website which is different from this 800-772-1213 number.

I Received a voicemail from 800-772-1213 at 9:49 AM on 11/13/2018. It sounded as if the first part of the message was not recorded while my outgoing message was playing.
The recorded "robocall" message said word for word:

...due to this all your social benefits will be cancelled until further clearance. In case you feel this is an error you may connect with legal South of Social Security Administration. In order to connect with a Social Security Administration officer press one now. In case we do not hear from you your Social will be blocked permanently. To connect now press one and you will automatically be connected with the concerned department official.

I accessed my online account with SSA and found no messages and all benefits active and unchanged. I requested a call back from SSA on the official online site. I received a call from the actual SSA from seemingly the same number that called earlier. The representative did ask for my SS number and I hesitantly gave it to her after she confirmed information that she could see on her screen. She then confirmed all of my benefits and contact information. She then submitted a report of the call I received from what is probably a scam source. She confirmed that SSA had reports of scammers that are able to make calls that appear to come from SSA. She said if they call back either do not answer or if I do answer share no information if I had not requested a call from SSA.

Got call from this number (800-772-1213), which is legit toll free number for SSN office. When I pressed one lady asked for my name. So I told her that you have initiated call due to problems with my SSN, so you tell me whom you are calling about. She said she can look up her data base with my name or based on their directory, So I asked her to trace internally. Immediately phone call was disconnected !!!

Today(nov 6 2018) I received a call from 800-772-1213 it was a computer generated recording asking my SSN number trusting it to be a SSN office number I gave my SSN details.I went to a near by SSN office and gave them all this info they told SSN people will never call us and she gave me a phone number as "1-866-501-2101" to report the scam call because they cant help us in this type of issues.As I wasted 2 hrs of time for this I dont want others to do so.so I want to share this info and even phone number.

I received 2 calls from 1-800-772-1213. One on November 2 at 12:13 pm and one today at 9:44 am. The last one was inadvertently answered by me when I opened my cell phone. The volume was down so all I heard was "Press 1 for the Social Security Administration or else you will be forbidden to reach this number in the future". I just shut it off. Now I am going to block this number. If the SSA wants to reach me for a legitimate reason, they can send me a letter by USPS.

10/29/2018 around 4pm I received a call from 1-800-772-1213 and answered the call anticipating it being a collections company re two outstanding payments I am resolving currently. To my surprise it was an automated system stating my personal SSN info had been compromised and to press 1 to be connected with a live agent. A man with very heavy Indian accent claimed that someone used my SSN, AND name in El Paso TX and that there is currently a warrent for my arrest. I countered ans asked why havent i been contecyed by us marshals, police, or my attorney? Also, How did you get this number? He provided his supposed name claiming to be John Smith, gave supposed employee badge number, phone number to call. He asked me to verify my name and last 4 of SSN. I foolishly did provide him with that info.

Feeling very skeptical and genuinely perplexed I am blessed to have not given out any further info.

I let the guy know his call was VERY strange and honestly I told him off, called him a rude jerk! Also that I was recording our conversation and going to share it with my attorney. Before anything else especially making a decision or giving response re my SSN THAT I would be speaking with my attorney!
