Social Security Scam Calls

Today, the FCC published a blog post talking about voicemail call back scams and how to avoid them.

These include fake Social Security Number scam calls, for example, that insist you have a problem with your social security number that requires calling them immediately to resolve.

The FCC’s post, however, missed the key thing to do: replace your mobile voicemail with YouMail. YouMail not only blocks almost all of these calls, but if any do get through, they are put directly into a spam folder and labeled as a scam so you can be sure you can safely ignore them.

Your carrier voicemail can’t do that!

  1. I get 30 Social Security scam calls a week. You mail doesn;t stop them and only notifies me one minute later that they were prevented from leaving a message. Too late to stop the harassment.

    1. Hm…that’s odd. Can you please Live Chat us at and mention this comment so that we can take a look at your account and what may be happening?

  2. I would like to know how do I see the real number that the person is calling from instead of that spoofing number they are hiding behind

  3. Youmail needs to fix their app so we don’t get a notification every time a robo spam voicemail is left. I don’t even want to know they called and left a message. I get 20-30 calls every day from these fraudsters and my phone has too many notifications as it is.
