The Culver City Police Department wants the community to beware of phone scams regarding your Social Security number. In one common tactic, the fake callers tell the potential victim that his or her Social Security number has been “suspended” because of suspicious activity or because it has been involved in a crime. The callers may ask their victims to confirm their Social Security numbers. They even say that the victims must withdraw cash from their bank accounts and that the accounts will be frozen if the victims don’t act quickly.
Do not provide your Social Security number, bank account information or send money to anyone.
