The Floyd County Sheriff’s Department is warning citizens of a phone scam. The caller states they work with the Social Security office and tells the victim that someone has been using their Social Security number. The victim is then told they need to have a new number issued and they must pay the cost of having the new number sent to them. The number shows up as a 1-800 number when called. If you receive such a call or others you are unsure of, contact the Floyd County Sheriff’s Office and they will help verify the legitimacy of the call.
