The Saline County Sheriff’s Department is advising residents of a scam they have run across involving Social Security payments.  Sheriff Wally George says that if you receive a call from somebody asking for personal information, never give it to them.

The Sheriff says in this particular scam, they are using some official sounding words in an attempt to scare seniors into giving out the information.

George also adds that the Social Security Administration never calls people to update that information, any contact they initiate is always through the mail.
