Yes, I got a call from this number and it was from the Social Security Administration. The person making the call left voice mail and gave me her personal number and extension and she had my personal information, asked for no additional information, and told me what my benefits will be.
I doubt it's an SSA employee running a scam, I think it's much more likely just caller ID spoofing by a scammer who has nothing to do with SSA.
I work for Social Security. This is indeed likely an internal SSA number, but I have received at least 5 calls from this number at my internal SSA number and it is answered by another one of those recorded messages for a credit card number scam. It's an obvious case of caller ID spoofing.
the voice of reason
In each state the social security offices have either a local number in each state and a toll free. I don't live in Oregon. And furthermore the first 5 numbers are never needed only the last 4. Which means anyone defending this number is part of the scam.
its dick cheney calling from the underground bunker
Called here as well, twice in a row. I did not answer. When I called back, I got a recording claiming to be the headquarters of the Social Security Administration. That it is headquarters calling from MD is highly doubtful, but what makes me even more suspicious is that they are calling on my cell phone, and as far as I know, Social Security only has my land line.
I got a call from 410-965-1234, asking me about my S.S. and other information. I called back and left a message with my phone number. No one called me back. Possibly, it is a scam.
Um, I work for the agency & got a call from this # at 7 am. I work over night. I wonder if it's an old # someone got a hold to cause trouble.
VERY LIKELY A SCAM! I worked at SSA HQs in Woodlawn MD. There are thousands of employee phone numbers there that begin with 410-965-xxxx. When an employee calls outside of the SSA building, it goes through a central switch so every SSA employee's number will display 410-965-1234 on your caller ID. So this call is coming from SSA in Woodlawn MD, however it is very likely an SSA employee or SSA Contractor running a scam. SSA doesn't call asking for info like this, and think about it, IT'S THE SSA, THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR SSN! So why would they call you and ask for it? There are good and bad people at most offices, looks like some bad ones here. And thinking about it, it makes sense you are receiving these calls on weekends and at night, BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE IS AT THE OFFICE. THESE SCAMMERS DON'T WON'T OTHER SSA EMPLOYEES HEARING THEIR CALLS TO YOU! When employees enter SSA on nights/weekend, they scan in, so if SSA wants to investigate this it should be easy to see the very few people there off hours. Also beware it appears these scammers are giving you false info on this site as well. One person said its from the Falls Church VA office. VA is area code 703, 410 is a Baltimore area code.
Want these calls to stop.
Want these calls to stop
I got a call from this number shortly after I applied for Medicare on-line. She knew I had not applied for benefits and tried to quote me a price. I have a call in to Social Security now. She asked for my DOB and SS# which I gave her. When she asked for my bank routing info I got suspicious.
SHE DIDNT ASK ME FOR ANY PERSONAL OR ACCOUNT INFO. I HAD SUBMITTED ONLINE FORMS FOR NEW ACCOUNT(ERROR) AND SHE CALLED TO VERIFY, IT LOOKED SUSPICIOUS, SO BEFORE THEY JUST SUBMIT IT, THEY WILL CONFIRM THAT IS WHAT YOU WANT. GLAD SHE DID
THE NUMBER BELONGS TO FEDERAL CREDIT UNION IN WOODLAWN. THEY CALL TO VERIFY NEW ACCOUNTS APPLICATION OR SUSPICIOUS THINGS ONLINE (THEIR WEBSITE). THE LADY DID NOT ASK ME FOR SS# AT ALL. THEY ARE LEGIT.
This number really does belong to the SSA Disability Division. They called for my husband, just checking to make sure that he got the forms they sent and to see if he had any questions or concerns. The woman provided her name, 1-800# and her 5 digit extension for him to call if he had any problems.
D Moore, you are correct, 410-965-1234 are phone calls that origniate at SSA HQ in Woodlawn Maryland. The calls go through an automated switch board and only provides that number to the recipient. And we do have people working weekends to clear up back logs
This IS the SSA. They called last week and I missed the call, and they did not leave a message. I jumped through hoops trying to figure out why they called because I have been waiting months to start receiving my benefits. I called my local office and they confirmed the number as one of the outbound numbers for the payment process center in Maryland. They called back today to verify my information to send my payment.
At 65 if you only applied for part A medicare they pressure you to get part B also. Then you get a bill for the previous month and the next two months. They say the amount of 104 will be taken out of your retirement check. But you are billed directly for hundreds of dollars all at once each quarter. i have other insurance so I only wanted part A which is free. I went to the local SSA office and told them I did not want part B in the first place. My application was for part A only. The high pressure sales tactics convinced me to get part B which I did not need because I have other insurance. I cancelled Part B at the local SSA office and was told I still had to pay hundreds of dollars which I was billed for in advance. They claimed the billing is done quarterly. I suspect a lot of lying going on in that office to squeeze every dollar out of retirees pension checks while the real abusers of the system get away with millions and millions of dollars. The doctors and hospitals who over bill medicare and charge the government for services and procedures not even performed.
They want to bill you hundreds of dollars for months in advance for medicare Part B. The caller pressures seniors to opt for part B when they only want part A which is free. Then you get a bill right away for the previous month and the next two in advance. They claim that it is billed quarterly. You get lots of threatening letters demanding payment of hundreds of dollars. I was dumbfounded when I got the bill and went to the local SSA office and cancelled right away. They said I still had to pay for the previous month and the next two anyway. It is a scam.
You are WRONG Geo. It is a phone number from the HQ in Falls Church, VA. This is not a scam. As to why they called on a Sunday, I'm not sure. Perhaps they have a workload that they were given OT to work on a Sunday. YES, the first 5 digits does help locate the correct unit to whom the call should go to. I've worked for SSA for 18 years, and have seen that number numerous times in my line of work. We generally receive those calls from the payment center for disability insurance.
I agree, this is a valid number for the SSN. I am working with a individual there to get an issue resolved and this is the number he called me from.
This is a legit call from the Social Security Office.
Perhaps some scammers are spoofing this number, but my call from this number was LEGIT.
this does not pass the smell test, I trust the 15 years of a police officer in me, if the ssa really wants to contact you , it would be done during business hours , during the week, lets say for example that the ssa employees work on the weekend, that may be possible, but why call somebody on a weekend day, that could wait for during the week, call youre local office , and their will be notes if anybody is trying to contact you, if it is a such important matter, the caller would leave a message about youre claim
do not trust it.
I got al call from this #, I have a claim, but don't know to trust it, I am reading all of the comments , so I think the people saying this number is ok, they are the scam, I am a retired police officer with 15 years, this does not pass the smell test, if it is the ssa, they will leave a message, and I just called the regional local office, and no notes was in the system that anybody was trying to contact me. so just call youre local office if you have any questions, also when a rep will speak to you, they will ask more than the first digits of youre ssn, they will ask and verify youre d-o-b, your full address, youre mother maiden name,
so ask the scammer or whoever on the phone you tell me some information about me if you are legite, they will know everything, when you filled for social security.when you sign up for social security they ask for everything up front, there is no reason for asking anything. and the processing center for the check is at Baltimore m.d. these scammers are smart , this is there living and to make money rather than work at a real career or job, so they are going to pull every trick in the book to fool you.
so you scammers writing on this site to fool people , you game is up, if you don't want a pissed off cop, on youre a**, you better pack it up,
How more day before they will stop calling 10 times for3 days now
I got a call from this number also. When the call went to voice mail they hung up. If this was a legitimate SSA call, why wouldn't they leave a message?
Here is the problem with this number, people:
You MAY be getting a call from Social Security, or you MAY be getting a call from a scammer. BOTH ARE HAPPENING because the scammer is using a phone spoofer app.
"Caller ID spoofing is the practice of causing the telephone network to display a number on the recipient's Caller ID display that is not that of the actual originating station. The term is commonly used to describe situations in which the motivation is considered malicious by the speaker or writer. Just as e-mail spoofing can make it appear that a message came from any e-mail address the sender chooses, Caller ID spoofing can make a call appear to have come from any phone number the caller wishes."
So how do you know if the call YOU got was legitimate, or a scam? It's a scam if:
1) The caller asks for ANY personal information (your name, address, social security number, birthdate, bank information, date of disability, type of disability, etc.)
2) You get a call after normal business hours
3) Something just doesn't "feel" right.
It almost all cases, disability benefit recipients will be contacted by their LOCAL social security office, not by the main office in D.C. Social security beneficiaries all have a case worker, and that case worker handles your file and is LOCAL to you.
When in doubt, call your LOCAL social security office and ask if there is any reason that the SSA would try to contact you. In almost all cases, the SSA contacts you by mail -- not by phone -- so that they have a written record of that contact.
It is very likely that some of the posting here -- the ones that say the number is legitimate -- got a call from the legitimate SSA. However, others, like G Fed Man (or whatever his name was), are part of the scam and are making a poor effort to confuse you even further.
I happened to get a call today from the number, and I instantly knew it was a scam when I listened to the voice mail message. Here is why I know the call I got was a scam: 1) The caller was whispering; 2) the caller said he was calling to verify my disability information (the SSA doesn't randomly "verify" like that); and 3) he said he would call me back. The real SSA would say, "Please return my call at ###-###-#### during normal business hours..." or something similar to that.
its a real number
This number just called me and left a message regarding an issue I had with SSA. The gentleman left his name and number so yes it is indeed a real working number to the SSA.
