Watch out for Social Security scams

Scammers are always hard at work trying to get into your bank account. In fact, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office has seen an uptick in calls from people claiming to be from the Social Security Administration. They claim to be there to help, but they are really after your personal information. Crime prevention specialist Heather Turco explains how it works.

If you think you’ve been called by a scammer, call the Lee County Sheriff’s Fraud Hotline: (239) 258-3293.
