PITTSBURGH – It’s a new twist on an old scam. Thieves are trying something a little bit different to get your money.
Attorney General Josh Shapiro issued a warning to Pennsylvanians Friday about scammers calling consumers telling and them their Social Security number has been suspended or compromised.
This is different than their usual tactic, which is telling people their Social Security number was stolen. Some consumers are said scammers are impersonating government agencies and threatening arrest if they don’t make a payment.
