Wellness Shot: The Latest Social Security Scam


There is a new social security phone scam to be aware of. Whatever you do, do NOT press 1 if you get a call from someone who says they are from the social security administration. The call may sound like an automated voice that says "your benefits are suspended....if you feel it's a mistake press 1." Do NOT press 1. This is the #1 scam this year with 17 million in losses already reported to the federal trade commission. The social security will never call you and threaten to take away your benefits.
