I'm not exactly sure what their scam is. The first question I asked is what company is he with (the recording says it's the SSA), he responded with "eff you." It went downhill from there.

Recorded voice says they are Social Security and the call Is to inform you that there is a legal enforcement filed on your social security number for fraudulent activities and that I need to call (804) 800-2212 or press 9 to speak to an agent to clear this matter up. The CallerID said "Unavailable" with the 804 phone number.

On August 19. 2019 at 3:43 PM Eastern Time in New York, I received a call from 808-525-5106 Haiku, HI. It was a robocall stating that they were from the Social Security Administration. Due to suspicious activity on my account, my account has been frozen. Please press 1 for more information. A man with a foreign accent answered and said "Thank you for calling the Social Security Administration. Can you please state the reason for your call?" I then said "You guys called me". He then laughed hysterically and hung up on me. I immediately hit redial and got a message saying the phone number has been disconnected or is no longer active.

I was contacted by 315-284-5238 this morning 8/15 around 10:25am. They left a voicemail saying that the Social Security Information had information about me that could lead to an arrest. I was very confused but did call back. The person that picked up said he was an officer and gave me his name and badge number. He gave me a case number and warrant ID. They asked for my address and how much my rent was. I gave this information to them.They asked me for the last four digits of my SSN. Unfortunately, I gave them this as well. Before I gave it to them, I asked several times if they could verify that this was the Social Security Administration. He stated several times that the government was recording this call and me doubting the validity of this call could be held against me in court. He then told me that my name was registered to a car in Texas found with cocaine and blood in it. They also gave me specific addresses that they said were tied to the crime in Houston and Texas. They said they had several pieces of information tying me to this crime. I was extremely scared because I knew this wasn't me. They told me I wasn't allowed to hang up or disconnect the line. I had to stay on speaker and was not allowed to mute the call or tell anyone about it. I was told if I hung up, it meant I was admitting guilt and that the authorities would come arrest me. They also said that this crime was a Federal Offense and could lead to 9 years of jail time. Additionally during a later point in my call, they wanted to know what bank accounts I had and credits cards + credit limits. They did not ask for specific account numbers. At some point, they thanked me for cooperating and said they would transfer me to a "higher authority" to start addressing this case. When I was transferred, I was told that my social security number needed to be suspended and a new one would be issued to me. For this to happen, I first needed to withdraw all of my money from my savings and checking accounts and put them into government bonds. This is where I started to feel very suspicious and questioned again how I could verify this was the SSA. The guy on the phone started being very threatening and raising his voice. He said I could do whatever I wanted but that the authorities would come arrest me because hanging up meant admitting guilt. At this point, I had a meeting I couldn't miss at work, so I messaged my boss to let her know something had come up and that I was scared but couldn't tell her why (I felt like I was being held hostage by the person on the phone). She came to the room and I told the person on the phone that I needed to go to the bathroom. I put him on mute (even tho he told me I shouldn't) and gave a quick overview of what was happening to my boss. Then, she told me this wasn't the way the legal system works and that it seemed like a scam. I unmuted and tried to again ask for verification that this was the SSA and if he could provide written documentation. He started getting very threatening and raising his voice. At this point, my boss was nodding at me to hang up so I trusted her and did. We did some Google research and it seemed that this was a very elaborate scam that has unfortunately been happening to a lot of people. She recommended I report this to the SSA and Better Business Bureau.

I didn't answer the call because I didn't recognize the number. The caller left this voicemail: "This call is from the Department of Social Security Administration. The reason you have received this phone call is to inform you that we just suspend (sic) your Social Security number because we found some suspicious activity. So if you want to know about this case, Press ONE. Thank you."

Received call informing of various discrepencies from fraudulent SSA contact, had information that was close and was mistakenly corrected. Warrant for arrest was mentioned,he was also asked about any and all accounts he had open and asked why he had none. This raised suspicion and he started to question the person on the phone and he was told police would be at his door in 45 min.
