The Better Business Bureau has alerted folks to a new scam involving Social Security cards. Those running the scam are telling consumers that the government or other agencies will pay their bills for them. All they need is your Social Security card number. According to the BBB, several complaints have come out of south Alabama. Consumers are given a routing number and are told to use the number off the back of their Social Security card as the bank account.
The BBB informed consumers that the statements in the scam are not true. Customers must know that their bills are not being paid. Also, they can incur additional charges such as late fees and/or disconnection of services. Folks should never give out any personal information to a phone caller and certainly not a Social Security card number. Contact the BBB toll free at 1(800) 239-1642 if you think you may have been a part of this scam.
