Myers says any official contact from Social Security will come by a letter in the mail. He stresses Social Security will never make threats of suspension of Social Security numbers. If you receive a scam phone call, or fall victim to an impersonation scam, you can report it to their Office of Inspector General at oig.ssa.gov.
