SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert is alerting Sacramento County residents about a Social Security number phone scam.

Many residents are receiving phone messages advising them that their social security number has been frozen, and if they want to learn more they need to press a number on their phone. This is not true.

If you receive this type of call you are urged to hang up immediately. Do not press the number or button requested to learn more information. Do not engage a caller as your voice may be recorded.

District Attorney Schubert recommends contacting the Social Security Administration webpage on security to learn what the administration will and won’t do, and to learn how to report these impersonations at the link provided: https://blog.ssa.gov/is-that-phone-call-from-us/.
