Social Security Scam Alert

Hubbard Police would like to remind our community to stay alert for scam phone calls or emails. 

Government impostor scams are growing and scaring a lot of people.  In one particularly version the caller, recorded message or email claims your Social Security number has been blocked because it has been linked to a crime.  They may even threaten that the police may be on the way.  You are told to “reactivate” this important number (your social security number), and to avoid arrest you have to pay a fee or buy gift cards and give the caller the codes on the back of the cards.

*Your Social Security number cannot be suspended, revoked, frozen or blocked.

Don’t give your Social Security number or other personal information to someone who contacts you by phone or email. SSA never requests information that way.

*A legitimate government employee will not ask you to wire money, send cash or buy gift cards as a form of payment.

*If you are threatened with arrest or some other legal action, it’s not the government calling.

Also, don’t trust the number you see coming up on your caller ID.  Criminals are able to spoof numbers to make it appear that calls are local and from a government agency.

To make sure it’s truly the SSA contacting you, hang up and call SSA’s main number at (800) 772-1213.

As always, if you need or want to speak with a Police Officer – please call 330-534-1133 or 9-1-1 for emergencies.
