Potential Phone Scam

Potential Phone Scam
Potential phone scam in the area

KCNI/KBBN received a phone call on Monday from a local individual informing of a potential phone scam. The call was, reportedly, a recording stating that the individual’s social security number had been suspended. It went on to give a phone number to call requiring further information.

The individual reportedly called the local area Social Security Office and they assured her that they would never call for something of that nature.

KCNI/KBBN left a message with Jewell Colbert, Social Security Regional Communications Director, but did not receive a reply.
