Latest telephone scam wants your Social Security #

MARTIN COUNTY - There seems to be no shortage of scams and ripoffs floating around this part of Texas.

The latest is a telephone scam where an official-sounding “government” spokesperson tells area residents their Social Security numbers have been changed, altered or in some way deleted and that if they’ll verify their SS # then his office will get it back into the system.

“These kinds of scams just keep coming around,” said Martin County Sheriff Brad Ingram. “Everyone needs to understand they should NEVER under any circumstances give out their private information over the telephone to a total stranger. Hang up and call law enforcement.”
