The Allamakee County Sheriff’s Office received reports of a scam in the area. The scam includes an individual calling by telephone requesting persons to verify their social security number over the telephone. When the person refuses to give their social security number, the scammer threatens that the Sheriff’s Office will suspend their social security numbers.
THIS IS AN ATTEMPT TO GET YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER TO BE USED FOR FRAUDULENT PURPOSES!
We would like to remind you to never give private information over the telephone unless you know the individual requesting the information.
