Scam Call: Social Security Number Used Fraudulently
LEWISTON, ID – A local resident contacted Daily Fly hoping to let the community know about a scam call going around. She says the caller claimed to be from the Social Security Office and the reason for the call was, ironically, fraudulent use of her Social Security Number. The caller told her to call the DEA through a phone number that is outside the United States.
She says the caller had a foreign accent and the call came from 1-800-222-4569. That number belongs to a business in Phoenix, AZ, not the Social Security Administration.
