The Social Security Administration is warning people to beware of callers impersonating social security employees over the phone.
If you receive a scam call, SSA says you should hang up and report the details of the call to the Office of the Inspector General at 800-269-0271 or online here.
The SSA says reports about fraudulent phone calls from people claiming to be from SSA continue to increase.
In recent reports, unknown callers are using "increasingly threatening language in these calls," according to the SSA website.
