Social Security scams are on the rise again. Scammers know that people on social security have a monthly resource, are nervous about losing it, and often the process of social security is confusing. Many of us have gotten the scam calls, "Social Security will suspend your benefits unless you call this number back immediately."
Don't get caught in this, never call back a number in a voicemail unless you are expecting the call. And if you ever doubt it, look it up online and go to the official site for social security to get your number. You worked hard for that money, and you deserve not to have someone trick you in to giving it to them.
