Social Security Scam Targeting Local Residents
09/06/2019- It appears yet another phone scam is hitting our region.
Both the Marinette and Menominee County Sheriff’s Departments are warning residents about phony Social Security alert calls that have been circulating. Officials say the first clue that it’s a scam is that it’s a robocall and people are encouraged to simply hang up the phone. The Sheriff’s Departments do want residents to report these scam attempts, but are asking them not to call 911 and instead contact their state’s Department of Consumer Protection to file a complaint.
