How a senior almost lost $300K in a Social Security scam


When the call came, the senior citizen was worried. If you don’t act fast, the caller said, your Social Security number will be frozen and the government will also freeze all your bank accounts. Take out the cash and I can help preserve your money, the caller said.

The senior did it, putting $45,000 in cash in bubble wrap and mailing it to the scammer. She then emptied her IRA account.
