@cjeans Man alive, sneaky turds! Crazy sounding scam, but I can see DH sleepily answering the question and going back to sleep. Hope things work out for you.

Social Security Request from MY INFO

Message 2 of 2

Wanted to share this one.   I received a call in the middle of the night.  I keep the phone by my bed.   It was a recorded voice which asked for the last 4 of my Social Security number - and guess what?  They caught me - i repeated it back to them without even thinking.   I then looked at the phone number and it was my own cell phone calling me, and the caller ID was MY INFO.   I called the credit bureau's to create an Alert first thing in the morning.
