Dear Editor:

Lately I’ve received three calls regarding my Social Security number being used, and I am going to be arrested because of all the debts this thief has made.

I was told to push number one on the phone pad which I did, out of curiosity, because I knew it was a scam. The foreign person on the end of that transaction answered by saying, he was officer somebody, and I replied, “No, you are a scammer!” and hung up.

My advice when, or if, anyone receives this nonsense, is, don’t push button one, nor speak with anyone. Just hang up.

My husband says, “If Social Security had information like that they would send us a warning letter through the mail.”

So beware. Shut them down immediately! DO NOT give any information, or Social Security numbers.
