Bruce Bolinger: Beware of phone scammers

Today at 7 a.m. and again 45 minutes later we received an automated phone call purporting to be a Maria Gomez informing us that our Social Security number had been suspended, and that we should call a phone number, which she provided.

I assume that we were targeted because we are in our 80s.

The Federal Trade Commission has a page on its website headed, "Scammers impersonate the Social Security Administration" with examples. Please beware of such calls.
