Scam Alert: Social Security

POSTED: August 30, 2019

A Message from the Bettendorf Police Department

******SCAM ALERT*****

The Bettendorf Police Department has received several reports of scam phone calls by suspects posing as the “Social Security Office”. The suspect calling states the victim’s social security number has been suspended due to some type of fraudulent activity. The suspect then asks the victim to verify their social security number, as well as, financial account and credit card information. It does appear there are several variations on this type of scam phone call. The suspect is a live person, not a recorded message.

So remember to never give out any of your personal information to anyone that has called you. Simply hang up the phone if you receive this type of scam phone call.
