I got a call from this number twice today and did not pick up( cuz I don't like to answer strange calls). Then I looked up this number and realized it is the number of SSA. I was worried so I called back, and it was a robot asking me the reason of calling. I got through to the end and waited to talk to a real person, but they made me hold for more than an hour... Then I found this site, realized the calls I got earlier were scams:( so I hung up... I guess SSA would send me a mail first if there is anything they want to contact me. I felt stupid :(

Exactly what everyone is saying I received a robocall with the message cut off saying they were going to suspend my social. I was so worried but since everyone's getting the same message I feel it's a scam.

I also received two calls from this number in regards to my SS#. Saying they will suspend my SS due to many suspicious activities and that I need to call them back to resolve.

Ditto, called twice today, did not answer, but my VM cut off the beginning, clearly a phishing attempt and I suspect by non-native English speakers (but pretty good compared to some). It's a robocall with a "hit 1 to speak to someone" prompt.
Interesting this is the SSN office, so if you call back, you'll realize it's a scam...I mean how many people are going to know the SSN offices phone number. I guess they just hope you'll pick up the robocall.

Same here... Scary thing is that this is the actual number for SSN. They're getting smarter, but don't be fooled.

I've gotten 2 robocalls with different recordings so be aware of both claims: One claims fraudulent activity with the SS# and to call back, but I'm hearing impaired and couldn't understand the number. They didn't repeat the number or offer a menu system. The recording info warned "if I didnt call back then good luck". Scare tactics the SSA does not use. The second call is what could have easily trapped many, its a recording with call back number that offers SSD recipients an opportunity to participate in the "Ticket To Work" program, which is a legitimate program. Thing is, this is not the proper process the SSA uses to contact anyone in regards to their programs or requirements. Go to your online portal or wait for official paper mail from the SSA for any instructions regarding your # or account. They will always follow up by paper mail for official business.
this number just called me as well

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.

Received a call at 9:07 A.M. on a national holiday informing my soc. security had been compromised with activity in mexico and Tanzania. I attempted to contact SSA, and verified what I already knew, CLOSED!! Total scam folks! don't fall for it!
I received the call from from SSA No and same message that SS# has been suspended and all the benefits are cancelled until. When it said dial #1 to talk to executive i disconnected the call. Thank god i checked here. i never heard SSA office call anyone, if there is anything they will send a mail.
I got a call yesterday I didn’t answer called back and realized that it was the real ssn office I thought omg there spoofed! Why would they call me? I’m so glad I didn’t answer the first time! These crooks somehow need to be caught!
I got the same call twice this week and I remember that I got it about 1 year ago. I didn't answer but I called back the number and managed to talk with the Rep. He was asking me about my name and the last four of my social to open my account. I hung on him. Usually they answer from india with a very distinctive accent. This is a 100% a scam, do not provide any info. They called my nephew while on vacation and asked him to deposit 4,000 due to a mistake when filing his taxes. He offered them a credit card so they can take the money and they said it has to be deposited into an international account in cash.
I'm a California resident, I've received 2 calls so far (different dates) from said number which I have not answered, the last one a few minutes ago. My cellphone displays "Social Security" as the caller. The second call left the following message "Your SS number have an immediate defect, due to this all your social benefits will be cancel until further clearance, in case you feel this is an error you may connect with a legal cell of SS admin, in order to connect w/a SS officer press 1 now, in case we do not hear from you your social will be blocked permanently, to connect now press 1, and you'll automatically be to connect with the concerned pertinent official." Although this number seems to be legit, I do not believe the calls are orginating from the SS office so BEWARE, IT'S A SCAM, DO NOT PROVIDE ANY INFO!
Got several calls from this number. I pressed 1 to talk to a representative and as soon as I told them I called to make sure everything was fine, they hung up.
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 !!!
got a call from this number and told press 1 to talk to representative and hung up
Received a call from this number today. They misspelled "Social Security" on the caller ID so that was a pretty big tip-off.
I received a call saying my SSN would be suspended and to press 1 to speak with someone. I just hung up. SSA never calls, they will notify you by mail.
Got this number but was surprise they use the SSA number but it's a spoof.
Scammers spoofing the real SSA number. Recoded messagw saying my social security was compromised. I breifly spoke to a rep, and they knew my full name. Totally a scam though!!
I just got the call this morning A recorded messaged about my SS number being deactivated and to press one to speak with someone Total scam so I just hung up
Called today at 9:57 a.m. Did not answer.
Called me today at 1:59pm and on 11/2/18 at 3:34pm. The number was blocked but still left a voicemail threatening my social security.
got a voicemail few days ago and knew it was a scam, like SS would be calling me to say my SS is suspended... They would be writing me!!!
Now they called again and I decided to pick up to tell them to leave me alone but it's all automated. Felt great blocking their number on my phone :)
I just a got a call from a 1-800-772-1213 stating that they Social Security and that my social security benefits would be cancelled and my SS suspended due to suspicious activity. They gave me the option to press 1 to talk to an agent, and then the call disconnected.
i just got 2 calls as well. and i called back before seeing this. can they do anything if i called back?
I received a call from this number 8007721213,
They said my SSN is suspended,,
I waited to speak with them,, he said tried to illustrate what suspended mean,, they I asked who to fix it,, he hanged up
I’ve recieved a call from this number twice and did not answer. One thing I notice is when I tried to see where the call was coming from, smart phones tells you the place, whether its from Texas, New York, California, or whatever case it may be. In this case, the number said “unknown” usually “unknown” numbers are private. I thought that was very weird, which is why I didnt answer or call back.
They have been calling me to. Its a scam
I got 2 calls from this number today. 2nd time I picked up although I was on another call on another line so missed the beginning message - just heard press 1. So I did. The guy who picked up asked my name and I answered you called me - he argued that they left a message and I called them back and I insisted that they called me. Gave them my name but when they asked the last 4 of my SSN, I said absolutely not, what is this about and he insisted that I give him my last 4 so he could verify my identity. Said absolutely not, you called me, what is this about? 2 more times and he hung up on me.
I received a call today with the same message as SSN will be blocked - asked me to press 1 - person introduced himself as Ryan Cooper and mentioned his badge Id as 02840175 and was trying to get my details. Beware, as they sound like real SSA officer and I can hear background noises of similar calls being handled
Have received at least four calls from this number indicating that my social security number will be permanently blocked. Thanks to all who have posted about this to let us know it's a scam!
Got 6 calls from this number and they left a voicemail saying my social security number will be blocked. That I had to press 1.
I have received multiple calls from this number for 3 days now.
Received called today, has to be scam.
Received many voicemails yesterday and today supposedly from this number. Number is SSA but this is a scam. Voicemail was very shady so I checked here and see many people are receiving same scam calls. Never reveal personal info! Best to call back directly to the SSA if you are worried. Thanks for sharing to keep other safe!
Spoofed number - Social Security scam says your SSN will be blocked permanently,etc.
they started to call me yesterday. have received at least 5 of them already. thank god i check here. so it is a scam. i just don't believe the SSA will use automatic robot to threaten me they will block my social permanently. but the caller ID is from SSA.
It’s a total scam...a witch hunt! Fugem by ignoring them. Do not call them back because now they know they have the right person and now can probably find your address, work location and family info! Just fukkk them by NOT responding.
As many others have said, I also got a call from this number telling me my social security number has been blocked due to suspicious a activity. Looked it up and it happens to be the real SSA number. Called them back and the menu was different. Scam. They managed to spoof the real number. Very tricky. Be careful.
Received calls today stated that my SS been suspended because of laundering money in Texas and US Marshall and 2 other brands of government are after me.
They did a good job of scaring me, made me panicked!!!
The recording machine took my name, SS number!!!
Today is my 62nd BD so I was trying to set up SS account earlier today, but aborted since I was in a hurry. Then just now, I received a robo-computer generated voicemessage saying I would be blocked. looked up number and while it is a legit number, it was spoofed by the scammers. Guessing they somehow know it's my 62nd BD somehow!! Maybe those GD sites like Geni and facebook that I don't use but distant family members post stuff like my BD!!!
They say my ssn has problem they try to cheat me to give them more infomation about me.
They say my ssn has problem they try to cheat me to give info. They are fake.
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 got the same scam call. I knew it was a scam but I played along for a while and the guy asked me for my name and social security so he could look it up. I gave him a phony name and social security number. I asked him if he found it and he replied "yes". Then I told him it was not the correct name and number and told him to go F--- off. Then I hung up on him. I looked up the phone number afterwards and see that it is a correct number for Social Security. I am sure lots of people get scammed this way. This is really terrible!
they called to say something wrong with my social security that it will be blocked i looked up the phone number and it is the ss # so it must be hacked not sure.
When they called 3rd time, I talked to them and said "GO FUCK YOURSELF"...guy hung up on me...How rude!!!
Stupid robotic voicemail about some “risk of permanent block....your social security “. Go fuck yourself and die in your poor country from a painful disease with great suffering
Three bogus calls this morning - blocked
I just got a message saying that my SS# will be suspended "because of many suspicious activity" After doing some research I realised that it's a scammer whose managed to spoof the # of SS. They left a different call back number of 530-459-8222
. TOTAL SCAM. DO NOT GIVE ANY INFO. Social security will NEVER call and ask for your social over the phone!!
i received a call and they mentioned they are calling from Social security service and if i won't call back they will cancel my ssn
Got phone call from this number twice within 2 hours with a voice message. Looked it up and found it's a scam. Blocked the number.
Just Right now, I got the same call, from Baltimore,Indian accent, they insist to me to say my SSN. I told him, NO LOUD and he told me that I'm in risk to lost my benefits. Please, DO NOT GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION. This call is a "Potential Scam".
someone called me with this number and said my SSN has been blocked due to suspicious activities. I hung up, googled the number and called it and then I noticed that the menu is totally different. Scam!
Called asking for my social sounded serious they even had a website butttt they won’t be scamming me !
I just got a call from this number which said the same thing. I searched this phone which shows the same phone number of ssa??? But I think if there is something important like this, they need to mail me not like that
Just got a pre recorded message saying my social security number has been blocked. Whatever!! This is obviously some BS.
My caller ID showed social security. It sounded very legit. They said there was suspicious activity with my social security number.
I have been constantly harassed by these calls, 740-431-4613
from this rude guy with a strong indian accent stating my ss# will be frozen due to suspicious activity and if I don't call back I could be arrested. I have blocked the numbers each and every time they come thru, but then new numbers come thru. COMPLETE SCAM!!!!
Got two calls from this number claiming the same thing on the second call but said what is this a scam and they hung up right away
I received a call as well a few minutes ago from this number about Social Security Blocking. This is a scam and needs to be reported to Cyber Crime. I hope people are not responding to this and pressing the various options.
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.
Indian guy called me representing that he’s SS administrator and my SSN has been blocked bc I had kind of suspicious activities transfer money and etc. He was telling me that I’m under investigation and he was calling me from the police numbers to make believe the story. Be careful he might ask you for your bank account and money transfer. Is well organized scam mafia
I also received a call today from this number stating that my Social Security Number has been suspended. I called them and they asked for my name and "last 4 digits of my social". Yeah, right. Watch out - this is scary quick scam.
recorded message that my social security is being suspended. Is this fraud call?
Scammer from India calling about my Social Security being suspended.
yep scammers, download true caller on your phones so you get notified before picking up.
Hi My mother just got this message and spoke with someone with a heavy Indian accent. Who tried to scam her with the social security information. Do not answer these fools!!!!
Totally a SCAM - They called twice, said my SS# was corrupted and that I was going to be arrested. Never gave them any info, filed for SS retirement last week and now getting calls. Looks like our SS gov has been and is still being hacked. Nice to know we are so protected by Big Brother
the same here !!!
very strong Indian accent and bla bla bla if ask specific questions
so they hang up right away
They just called me three times... tried to get me to confirm my information which I would not! She has a foreign accent. Said that my social security number was being frozen because it was used for criminal activities in TX! She even told me to google the number to ensure that she was a legit social security employee!!! PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!
I got a call from this number saying my SSN is used for suspicious activity.
I received an automated call stating my ss# has been compromised and that I need to press #1 to reinstate my SS# or it will be closed.
Yup same as everyone else automatic message saying there has been suspicious activity related to my SSN and to be connected press 1. Can't believe they can use a real ss number. Please don't give them any other information.
Got this about three times this morning and a few times yesterday. Finally decided to pick up to amuse myself. Dialed 1 to be connected to a "Social Security Agent." When the call went through I asked them why they called me and a guy with an Indian accent picked up and told me I was transferred and asked me how he can help me. Stated again he called me and asked me how he can help me. When I asked him for his name he said "Kevin Bacon." Besides disguising their number so it looks like it's a call from calling from a possibly legit looking number, these guys are terrible SCAMMERS.
Scammers with fake number
Got 3 missed calls from this number an hour ago and i listened to the voicemail and it said that they will suspend my social because it has many suspicious activity and asked me to call this number 360-775-2840
. I went online and google the 1800 number and luckily i saw this website so now my suspicion is real that they are bloody scammers.
Report it to https://oig.ssa.gov
Wow.... I received a call from this number but did not answer. I looked it up and it said it was the SSA so believed it to be their number. I called back and while on hold I looked it up and came across this whocalled.us site. I totally thought this was a legit phone number. I just recently retired and thought the SSA was calling me to confirm some info which it said they might do in the application. I hung up thank goodness before giving any info and blocked the call. I am shocked that these scammers can do this with what appears to be legit numbers. How are we to know what is real and what is not :-(
Got a call from what appears a legit SSN number ... and had to listen to the stupid message about my SSN getting permanently blocked ( lol) ... attempted to talk to scammers and was transferred somewhere in India, but after a few questions they dropped the call ( sad)...
how did they manage to mask themselves as a legit SSN phone number ... Scary!
They called me today (11/1/18) and said my social security benefit will be canceled because of some illegal activity. Block this number! this is a scam!
Ditto... They've called twice a day for 2 weeks now. I just answer the phone, press 1 and just breathe heavy. Everyone should do the same...They will eventually stop.
Ditto - same scam has been hounding my phone. Kept forgetting to but finally blocked the number.
I received the call from the Social Security office I recognize the number but they did not answer because there was no reason why the Social Security office would call me, then later I found out that it might have been a scam.
I just got a call for the second time. And at first, it was convincing and terrifying at the same time because the recorded voice said that my SSN has been blocked and if I don't talk to an agent by pressing one my SSN would be blocked permanently. So I pressed 1, and a guy with a very strong Indian accent asked for my name and my last name to look it up, and then after few seconds he asked for my SSN and I said I don't feel confident giving him my SSN while I was searching the number on google and then I realized they're a big scammers! DON'T GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION, SIMPLY HANG UP THE PHONE.
My daughter recently received a bunch of calls from this number.. when her RoboKiller said it was from the US Social Security Administration, she was convinced it was real.. she called them a woman robot answered it and said her number had been blocked to press 1 and she did to speak to a live person.. they asked her for her name and ss number .. as soon as she said how do I know if this is legitimate they hung up.. so frustrating indeed!
social security called me like 4 times
District of Columbia 1week
Just got a call like the rest of you that something suspicious is up and my SSN is blocked. Stayed on the line to talk to someone while googling this number. Saw these posts and hung up. Thanks for sharing!
