HCSO Community Resource Deputy Jeff Merry says residents need to watch out for new telephone scams: “Please be cautious when providing personal information over the telephone. There has been an increase in social security fraud telephone scams targeting Sun City Center residents. We have had at least eight victims in the last week.”

Deputy Merry cautions residents to remember:

1. The Social Security Administration will never call you
2. You should never be asked to provide your social security number over the phone
3. The Social Security Administration will never ask for cards

If you have any questions, please call the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Sun City Center substation at 813-242-5515.
