Social Security Administration Talks Rise in Scams and Young People

ILLINOIS (RFD) —- Scams are not going away and continue to come at us in nearly every direction.

This September, Social Security is once again taking time to raise awareness about scams for not just the often most vulnerable in our communities – seniors – but younger populations. Jack Myers with Social Security says youth are also the targets of imposters because of their curiosity when online.

Other tips from Myers include not carrying around your Social Security card unless you are headed somewhere you need it. You can also shred documents that contain personal information and regularly check financial statements.
