Well we didn’t get very far into 2019 without needing another scam alert. This one appears to be targeting senior citizens or anyone on any type of social security income. The scammers are claiming that a fine is owed and that their social security income will be frozen until the fine is paid. Frankly, this seems to be a foreign operation and they haven’t done their research. They claimed to represent “social services,” apparently missing the fact that social services and the social security office are not the same! That being said, please pass this on to friends and family. Unfortunately, the elderly are especially vulnerable to these types of scams.
