Yesterday my phone rang. Often I let calls go to voice mail, but as I was expecting a call, I answered. The voice on the other end informed me that he was from the Social Security Administration. He further stated that there was a criminal complaint against my Social Security number.
Now in all the years I have been dealing with the Social Security Administration, never even once have they called me. If I wish to speak to them, I am the one who initiates the call. If they wish to get in touch with me, they do so via the US Mail.
So I told the gentleman that in all fairness and full disclosure, I was informing him that the call was being recorded and would he please clearly state his name, his title and the phone number at which my attorney could reach him to discuss the matter.
He hung up. I don't know why. :)
