Chapter 15. Scams > Social Security Scam

Social Security Scam

Social Security is not a scam. However, there are swindlers who tell senior citizens that they can get back from the government all the Social Security tax payments that were made throughout their lives. For a small processing fee of usually about $100 and a percentage of the refund, the con man (or woman, for equal opportunity criminals) promises to file the proper claims forms with the IRS. This is a total fraud. Social Security tax payments are not refundable under any circumstances. The victims of this scam pay their fee and wait for the refund that never comes.
