These are Scams – Fraud Calls.

When you receive a “cold call” from one of these federal agencies, it is a fraud call. A “cold call” is an unsolicited call from someone that you did not call or they may leave you a message to call them back. These are fraud calls, or scams. The callers are attempting to get your personal identifying information, such as your social security number, your bank account, your CSA number or your credit card information. Absolutely no federal agency will ever “cold call” you to discuss your personal identifying information. Be aware and don’t let this happen to you!
