We have had this happen twice in the last week. The phone call is from a generic number with a United States area code. Upon picking up, an automated voice tells you that this call is from the Social Security department and that your Social Security number/account is being frozen due to fraud. You are told to press the number 1 to correct the situation/have any chance of unfreezing your SSN access. After pressing 1 (which I did to see where this call went, not to actually give any info) a young man comes on the phone and asks for your Social Security number. At this point, I told the person that the scam was not going to work. He made one more attempt to sound legitimate, but upon realizing I was not falling for it, he said I was stupid and hung up on me. Both times the men had quite heavy accents - I add this not because I want to stereotype, but only because it could help narrow down where the calls originate from. I worry a great deal about vulnerable people getting these calls and being persuaded to give them their important info. I hope this helps in some way.

We've been getting calls on our phone saying that my husband's social security number was stolen. These calls come in nonstop. I called the ScamPulse.com for help. The ScamPulse.com registered my husband and I for the state and federal Do Not Call List.

Left my husband a voicemail saying he would get a warrant for his arrest if he did not call back. I called and it was "social security services" which only contact people by mail. Asked for the last four of his social. When i said i would not give that information out unless he could prove it wasnt a scam he hung up the phone.

I was called on Friday, November 13th with the following story.

I initially spoke to an "Officer David Wilson", Badge #SSA743, in which he indicated I had a warrant for my arrest in the state of Washington. He alleged that my name and SSN was used to rent a Toyota Corolla and that I was being charged with 3 violations for drug trafficking, human trafficking and money laundering. I was provided with Case ID# CA4685631 and Warrant ID# CA6931. I was told that my SSN needed to be changed and that I had to prove my innocence by cooperating with them. I was later transferred to Benjamin S Alpert (not real name of course), Badge #SSA1500775. I looked up his badge # online and it showed his name under the Office of Inspector General. I was told that I was under surveillance and that I could not speak to anyone and that they were monitoring my phone calls. Mr. Alpert also indicated that if I told anyone, the police would be called due to my warrant and I would go to jail. I was also told that I was looking at 14 years in prison and potentially $85k in legal fees. After about an hour of being questioned, I was told that I needed to liquidate my checking & savings otherwise my accounts would be frozen. Mr. Alpert stayed on the phone with me as I got in my car, went to my back and proceeded with the "steps" to prove my innocence.

I was instructed to go to my bank and just leave $1,000 in my savings and checking. Fortunately I left more than that, but Mr. Alpert stayed on the phone while I was in the bank and I was told to remain calm and not provide any details. I was then told that I needed to go to Kroger or Food Lion and purchase gift cards with this money. When I questioned that, I was told that this shows "good faith" and that I could not have liquid cash but it needed to be gift cards. The gift cards had to be Nike, Target or Best Buy. When the gift cards were purchased, I had to take pictures of them to send to Mr. Alpert. I was told that I would be reimbursed this money via cashier's check.

Anytime I tried to dispute and question, Mr. Alpert had an answer. Fortunately I started to feel very strange and did not complete this with all of my cash, but still lost thousands of dollars to this scam. I asked Mr. Alpert for a picture of his badge which he sent to me when the transactions were complete. The picture was of an actor.

When I told Mr. Alpert that I was heading home and wasn't going to do this anymore, he was irritated and told me that I needed to only do what he was instructing. The phone numbers he provided were shortly put out of service.

I hope folks read this and are not found victimized.
