Comanche County Sheriff warns people about social security phone scams

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - As the Holiday’s approach, Comanche County Sheriff Kenny Stradley has a warning about scams.

He said they all center around scammers claiming something is wrong with your Social Security number.

Stradley said there have also been scams where the caller actually says they are from the sheriff’s office -- and that they have a warrant to either search your house or your social security number because of fraud.

”You work too hard for your money, don’t let these people beat you out of it. Trust me, it’s a scam. please do not lose your money or social security by what I consider sorry people trying to take your money,” said Sheriff Stradley.

Stradley said if you do get these calls, hang up and avoid giving them any of your personal information whatsoever, especially your social security number.
