I just got a call from SSI....

a bogus call that is. Even the voice sounds computer generated. My number has been 'suspended' Although the voice said suspend, because they found some suspicious activity If I want to know more I should call the number. Is there anyone that I can report this too? That is, anyone/any department 45 hasn't reassigned to his reelection campaign?

1. Just ignore it

Calls like that likely come from foreign countries so the law canít do anything to help you.

2. Sure sounds like it is a Computer

generated. The voice sounds like the Ma Bell computer generated voice.

3. I get calls, texts, and emails with that crap. I just erase what I can, hang up when I can...

talking to them just confirms someone's out there and could invite more.

4. You can report it to your state attorney general's office

Don't call back. There have been people threatened when they called back and complained. The advice is --don't call them. No one knows what they have or know (for example your address).

5. I had 3 calls with the same voice message from 3 different numbers....

From 3 different states. It is a scam. Like with the IRS, Social Security does not call and leave messages calling for your arrest.

8. When you get a call from an unknown number...

Answer it but don't say anything. It's voice activated. If you don't say anything it will hang up after 4-5 seconds. If it's a live person they will say something.

12. My wife just got a similar call from "Social Security" a minute ago.

It originated from Colorado according to caller ID.

13. When I got that call, the number was a San Diego number..I called the San Diego Police Department.

I was asked if I gave them any money, and I said no. The person at the San Diego Police Dept. said that if I have not given them any money, then there is no crime committed that the department can prove. That is what I did with the call.

17. In the last month, my SS number

has been suspended 4 or 5 times a week with a threat to jail me each time. So far, I haven't been arrested and my number is still valid.

Somebody is really screwing up.

19. Tell them to let you know what time they are coming to arrest you. Them let them

know the FBI would like to help them.

21. Oooohhh. FBI. I'm liking the sound of that.

It's rare that I pick those calls up and have a little fun but dropping the FBI into the chat could be worth it.

Great idea.

"Agent Frank Johnson here, how may I help you?"
