Social Security Number Scam

A scam alert has been issued by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office reminding Kentuckians that a federal government employee will never suspend your Social Security number or demand you wire money over the phone.

The suspended Social Security number scam, which usually includes a scammer asking for confirmation of a Social Security number, is a reoccurring scam that has been reported nearly 90 times in 36 counties this year.

Scams can be reported to be the Office of the Attorney General at 888-432-9257 or via an online complaint form. Anyone who believes their personal and financial information has been compromised should follow guidance proved by the Federal Trade Commission at identitytheft.gov.
