Compromised social security

  • Monetary Loss: $0
I keep receiving calls from various phone numbers saying my social security number has been compromised and that my number has been cancelled as well as any payments that are due to me. I receive numerous phone calls on a daily basis. Once I answer the phone and I hear the message I am transferred to a live person who then hangs up on me when I respond that they called me. I do not give them any information other than that. They only call my cell phone never my landline.
