This is the number that called but the number they instruct you to call back at is 206-452-3261. When I called the person identified themselves as being from social security. She then proceeded to tell me that there was an investigation into the criminal activity with my social wanted to know if the DEA had contacted me and said there were other things she would read off after I gave her my SSN.... Uhh I don't think so. Please don't fall for the urgency and their attempts to scare people into giving up their information. Its a scam and is not really social security... Its also a Saturday morning.

Denver, CO .... I just got an automated call from 800-772-1213 and it was a recording saying “This is the Social Security Administration and we’ve detected illegal activity with your SSN, it is imperative you call us back immediately before we start seizure of your assets” .... So I googled the number and sure shit the number is on the Social Security web site. But after reading further and looking into google more, turns out its a robocall and all kinds of people online saying they are getting the same call ... SCAM FUCKS!!!!

I got a call from 800-772-1213 which happens to be the Social Security administration’s actual customer service#. ““Resolve this issue I repeat press one to connect to the Social Security administration _⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_ your key resolve this issue if you have a missed call I will call back number is 208-643-6377 I repeat the callback number is 208-643-6377 not disregard this message and called back if you need to ask this is a very serious matter goodbye…” FAKE!

I just received a VM from a very stern sounding man from the number 800-772-1223.

Here is my iPhone VM transcript :
““This issue I repeat press one to _⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_⁠_ administration and if you need to be resolved issue if you have a missed call I will call back number is 208-643-6377 I repeat the callback number is 208-643-6377 not disregard this message and called back if you need to keep this is a very serious matter goodbye…”

I called back the 208 number and an Indian sounding guy with loads of background noise immedietely asked for my first and last name and I said no and he said “ okay” and that was it .

Scammers for sure

800 772 1213 is the soc security office 800-722-1213 is not). However, the scammers have an app that makes it look like the call is coming from the valid number. 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. Rep. told me to call a fraud hotline and report, because they are investigating. Fraud hotline: 800-269-0271.

Just got call from this number, by the way, the number is legit, probably they use app like fake call, which has option to call to any number FROM ANY NUMBER.
