Have you ever received a call like this? (It can be unnerving, but don’t panic!)
It starts out with a warning about this being a LEGAL action and mentions the Social Security Administration but refers to it as the SSA ... and says something about an “audit” and a Form 1040. LOL. A 1040 is not a Social Security form. It is an IRS form, but when you hear these terms, it is not a laughing matter. It’s scary.
Next the caller will tell you NOT TO DISREGARD THIS CALL, but to call them back IMMEDIATELY or they will proceed with the next “legal action.”
This caller ended with HAVE A BLESSED DAY! ...
These callers just throw out all these terms designed to frighten you. NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION. The best thing to do is to hang up!

844-432-5964 keeps calling.. indian guy on a recording with same nonsense. He's been using this number for a while.. reported multiple times to the FBI but nothing ever happens to shut down the #... probably because he doesn't "intend" to break the law.

Yes, it can be fun to lead them on, but it is serious when senior citizens get a frightening call. Please share this with all seniors that you know so they don't become victims. Here is a comment from a friend: "I got a brand new one today... this "India" speaking type voice wanted to know if I was going to continue on my magazine subscriptions.. and when I ask which one... he said all four of them.. but kept ignoring my questions as to what magazines he was calling about... But he kept on like he didn't hear me and than using my first name over and over again. He said I needed to get the credit card I used for the original subscriptions so he could verify my number on my account, so that WHEN I gave him MY information, he could verify that I was the person to whom he was speaking to ...
That's when I told him flat out.. he did not have my credit card number for me to "check" for him as I don't order magazines on my credit card, i fact I don't order magazines at all!!"
So they just keep coming up with new scams all the time!! BE WARNED!
I get these calls - I act drunk and pretend the caller is my girlfriend in another city and start phone sex talk. Retirement can be boring at times and these calls break up the day and can be entertaining if you want them to be.
