Caller ID “Spoofing” of Social Security Fraud Hotline Phone Number

Caller ID “Spoofing” of Social Security Fraud Hotline Phone Number

Cybersecurity

The Inspector General of Social Security released a statement warning citizens about a caller ID spoofing scheme. Fraudsters are using the Social Security Fraud Hotline number to call citizens. Social Security employees do not place outgoing calls from the Fraud Hotline number. It is advised that you do not engage with these calls or provide personal information.

If you receive a suspicious call from someone alleging to be from the Social Security Administration of Office of the Inspector General, you can report that information online at https://oig.ssa.gov/report or by calling (800) 269-0271, Monday through Friday 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM ET. You can also report these scams to the Federal Trade Commission through a new site specific to Social Security scams: https://identitytheft.gov/ssa.
