On Thursday, a woman received a phone call from a man identifying himself as “Justin Peterson”. He told the woman that he was from the Social Security Office and that she needed to withdraw $1,000. He then stated for her to meet him at the Sunco gas station and deposit the money into a flip coin machine. The woman only had access to $900 and did what he said. She did contact the bank and let them know what was happening.
The identity of Mr. Peterson is unknown at this time.
Social Security will never threaten, scare, or pressure you to take immediate action.
