Markesan Police Warn of Scam

(Markesan) Markesan Police are warning residents about a variation of the Social Security Scam that is making the rounds. In the latest version the caller advises you that your Social Security number and assets are going to be frozen if you don’t take immediate steps. The call is usually automated and instructs you to push a specific number for assistance. Police say the Social Security Administration would never call you about your account and this is a scam in which the caller is trying to get personal information out you for their own benefit.
