Social Security Phone Scam

On Friday September 18th 2020, the Douglass Township Police Department was informed by a resident that the received a suspicious voicemail.  The call was from the phone number (740)218-1967 and the voicemail left stated to have social security number ready when calling back to verify information or else there would be a warrant issued for their arrest.  No other information was given on the voicemail.  We want to remind our residents and anyone reading this.  Please DO NOT give any of your information over the phone to anyone.  If something smells fishy, then it probably is.  Hang up and call your local police department so that we can look into it and make everyone aware of the current trending SCAM.  Currently it seems to be social security fraud.
