Beware of social security scam in Eastern Kentucky

By  | 

FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - The Floyd County Sheriff's Department is warning people in the area about a new scam.

In this scam, the caller says they work for the Social Security Administration. They say someone has been using your social security number and that you need to have a new number issued.

The caller then tries to convince you that you need to pay the cost of having a new card sent to you.

The number appears as a 1-800 number when called.

If you receive a call like this or others that you are not sure of, the sheriff's office said you are welcome to call and they will help verify the legitimacy of these calls.
