There’s a new scam going around regarding Social Security cards. You get an e-mail saying the government is going to send you a new card, but first they need to verify your Social Security number and some other facts. This is a scam — don’t fall for it.
This is not the way the government works. You don’t get a new Social Security card unless you specifically request one.
Don’t ever give anyone your Social Security number without a really, really good reason.
