Those types of scams are so rampant. I never take a call from Social Security or the IRS. I either call them or use their official websites that have a verification code.


Hi Rebecca,

Good for you. You're an alert, informed consumer.

I hang up quickly when I get these kind of calls. Don't even talk to these people.



What will they think of next? I did get a call from "the IRS" and I laughed at them before hanging up. When I lived with my mother, she would get numerous calls on her landline from people representing themselves as from Microsoft. She never owned a computer in her life.

Hi Jennifer,

Scammers target seniors. When a senior falls for a scam, they share the contact number with others. Some seniors have lost all their money to scammers.
