Long Life & Happiness



From our Director…..

Lynda Chrisson

Happy 2019!!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.

For everyone who helped make the holidays special for others –

thank you so very much! Goody bags, Project Warmth Blankets,

Families Helping Families, food baskets, and every Center’s holiday

activities could not have happened without so many generous

people helping make each activity and event special. Every

gift or card you sent, every hug, every smile, every special treat,

every meal you packed and delivered, every craft you made, and

song you sang made a difference in someone’s life. Thank you


I often use this issue to share tips to help all of us stay safe during

the cold weather and flu season. This year is different. The

FTC is requesting that information about a very nasty scam regarding

Social Security accounts be shared and we feel it is important

for you to know what’s happening. So, stay safe and

warm, keep your pets warm, drink lots of water, watch out for

slippery decks and steps, wash your hands frequently, and please,

spread the news about the information below from the FTC and

my personal experience.

Have you received a recorded phone call from someone claiming

to be from the Social Security Administration? I received calls

twice in one week. The recording is convincing and creates a

very real feeling of panic and fear about losing your monthly

check. Before I recognized the first call as a scam, what went

through my head was: 1) I’ve been a victim of identity theft; 2)

my identity has been used to commit a crime; 3) the crime has

been discovered and law enforcement is taking action against my

account; and 4) the SSA is calling to help me regain my identity,

get out of this mess, and keep my benefits – wow aren’t they

nice! The scammer is counting on you or me being so upset that

we automatically follow their instructions to start resolving whatever

the problem is so that our next check arrives on time.


There are several call variations. The calls I received said that

my Social Security account had been linked to a crime involving

drugs or sending money out of the country illegally and my account

was blocked. Or the caller may say that somebody used

your SS number to apply for credit cards and you could lose your

benefits. Another variation is that your bank account is about to

be seized and that you need to withdraw all your money. For

each version, the caller has a way to help you resolve the problem.

They ask you to respond in a specific way to be connected

to a staff person. DON’T DO IT - HANG UP THE PHONE!!!

The FTC wants everyone to know:

• The SSA will never-ever call and ask for your SS number,

ask you to send them money, and won’t call to

threaten your benefits.

• Your caller ID might show the SSA’s real phone number

(1-800-772-1213), but that’s NOT the real SSA calling.

The SSA does not make calls from this number.

This number is only for the public to call SSA. Computers

make it easy to show any number on caller ID. You

can’t trust Caller ID anymore.

• Never give out your SS number. Don’t confirm the last

4 digits. And don’t give a bank account or credit card

number to anybody who contacts you asking for it.

• Remember, anyone who tells you to wire money, pay

with a gift card, or send cash is A SCAMMER – AL-


If you get a call from someone who says they are from the SSA,

GET OFF THE PHONE! Please call 803-356-5111 and let our

Later Life Ad-

vocate, Karen know

about this or

any other scams you

discover. You

can also call the real

SSA at their call-in only number, 1-

800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).

If you have

spotted a scam, tell the

FTC at
