Suspect in Social Security scam

Baltimore police are warning elderly residents about a Social Security scheme.

The police say that seniors living in and around Federal Hill in late April received a call from someone claiming to be a Social Security representative. Victims are told that they received more money in their Social Security checks than they should have, and they must make a partial repayment if they want to continue receiving their checks, police say. A con artist then shows up at their door to collect the money.

Anyone who is a victim is being asked to call the police at 410-396-2400.

Not sure how many seniors read our blog, but if you know of any, pass the warning on.
