Neligh Police Chief Mike Wright is warning residents of a phone scam that struck in Neligh on Tuesday involving the Social Security.
Wright said the call used a female-voiced robo-type call and stated the following, "This is Linda. This is the final reminder from the Office of Inspector General of Social Security Administration. Your Social Security number has been suspended. Please contact the Emergency Help Line number which is 512-862-4417. I repeat 512-862-4417. Thank you."
Wright said he called the number listed and received an automated message stating, "The Google subscriber you called is not available. Please leave a message after the tone."
As a reminder, the Social Security Administration - like other government agencies - do not use phones to contact people. Never give personal information out to any caller.
