that scammers are now going to the
Social Security Administration's website,
setting up a "my Social Security" account under your name
your social security benefits. They explain how the scam works and warns
only 1 social security account can
per social security number.
Set up your account
to beat the scammer setting one up under your name and social security
number. With Equifax's (one of the three companies that keeps ALL your
information, including your social security number) multiple data
breaches, scammers may already have your
Social Security number and information. You are playing Russian Roulette if
you don't protect your benefits and bank accounts.

Twice this week alone,
I've been tricked into answering a phone call from a telemarketer. The
number displayed on my phone (and our TV) was my doctor's office, then a
local number I thought was a friend's number. They were neither. My husband
says he gets them on his cell phone, as well. Just yesterday, I got a phone
call from a woman who had a missed call that displayed my phone number
on her phone. She was returning my call... the call I never made, to a
person I don't know. This is called Spoofing. Click on the FCC's
Spoofing and Caller ID, to read about the practice, when it is illegal,
and what you can do. Wikipedia's
spoofing explanation is also very good and easy to understand.
Please note that the website/newsletter is
