Fraud/ID Theft:A man reported to police that he had been the victim of an identity theft fraud over the phone. The victim received a call from a “Texas Social Security Officer” claiming he had pending criminal charges due to money laundering and drug trafficking. The scammer then asked for date of birth and his social security number and threatened the victim with arrest. These types of scams are common and RPD advises to never give personal information over the phone to unknown callers without verifying the agency’s authenticity.
