236-3225 For Release: Immediately
SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER SCAM
The Davidson County Health Department was notified this morning that someone is calling residents and identifying themselves as representing the health department and asking for social security numbers in order to update their information at the health department. This is a scam. Never provide your social security number to someone who calls you and requests it.
If you receive one of these phone calls, do not provide the information, attempt to identify the phone number from where they are calling, and call 911 to report the incident.
For more information, contact Mike Newby at the Davidson County Attorney’s Office at 336-236-3225 or the Lexington Police Department.
