It appears that I'm in deep trouble with the social security administration.  I know this because I just got a pre-recorded call advising me of such.  For details, and to talk to the officer in charge, all I had to do was press 1 on my phone key pad.

What to do?  What to do?

    That settles it.  It must have been your arresting me.

    Well, I'm doubly dammed,
    Social Security called me yesterday and the IRS today.

    Apparently I've been a BAAAAAD man

    Who else is having their SSN deactivated??  Apparently Sharron Williams wants to help me clear up my federal student debt as well.

    My wife's is being deactivated.

    I pressed 1 to speak to someone about my student loans the other day (which I don't have) and read the woman on the other end the riot act.  She said, "But sir, you can request to be removed from our calling list." I pointed out that since I am on the FEDERAL do not call list, I already HAD.
    I also asked the company name and what state they were located in so I could turn it over to the FCC and my personal lawyer.

    Surprisingly, they haven't called me back, after having called me for 5 or 6 days in a row.

    It is not difficult to set them up so they get arrested.

    Huh. 

    All I ever get is "Lisa, from card member services" and offers to extend my vehicle's warranty...

    I constantly get calls from an automated number about “my google business listing”. They patch you through to a real person if you stay on the line. I’ve busted 3 people’s eardrums  so far with an airhorn from Amazon. Never heard cursing in Indian until then.

    I will not be seeing you fine folks on this forum anymore. Trouble with the IRS, my Federal student loan has problems of some sort, there's an arrest warrant out for me and my Social Security account has been suspended. That's just this week! Man, when it rains it pours. Now if that Nigerian Prince would just hurry up and get me my money so I can hire a lawyer to clear all of this up!  Scumbags.

    Had one of these calls a few months ago, if a number doesnt come up on my caller ID i usually dont answer it, but this was a local number, I played along with them and told them I was at work and call me back and gave them the number of the Brevard County Sheriff's office, havn't got any calls since.

    I love the ones telling me that one of my accounts is in collections and that if I don't act right now and speak to a representative I will be (insert inane threat here).   :D

    I get the google ads one almost every week.

    Yep, mine is deactivated, but they keep taking $$$ from my pay. Not sure why...

    The one I get constantly is “Dave, from your local Air Duct Cleaning company.”

    I like the air horn idea.  I think I will go pick one of those up.

    I get those calls all the time. Fortunately, my Navy Language Training skills come in very handy when talking to them. I've added a few 'magic words and phrases' to those over the years.I have one in particular that sets off the Middle Eastern folk like you would not believe. One of the new Medicare/IRS/SS scams is coming out of Jamaica; I checked the Ph # on a few to find out.

    Just about all the calls I get are using spoofed numbers.   Makes it hard to track the real location.

    This past Friday I got SEVEN calls telling me my SSN had been suspended. I don't care. Before I get to use it the system will be dead broke.

    Mike, old buddy, that will surely make two women very mad at you.

    Me too. The Telcos need to step up and do their part. Why is it so easy to spoof a different phone number?

    From what I've heard, so "Joe" that works for "XYZ industries" can have "XYZ Industries' " main number show up on your caller ID when he calls

    So I can see a legitimate reason, corrupted by the illegal robocallers

    What can I do to deactivate my social security number?  Does that mean I get more take home pay?

    I am VERY OK with this.
