Fraudulent Calls Claiming to be from the Social Security Administration

This past week, several Pantego citizens have received calls from scammers claiming to be from the Social Security Administration. The phone number that these calls appear to be coming from is the same as that of Town Hall. This is due to a process known as “spoofing” where a scammer hides their real number and makes it appear that they are using someone else’s legitimate phone number. If you have experienced this type of scam, we encourage it to be reported to the FCC, or to the Pantego Police Department at 817-274-2511. You are also welcome to contact Town Hall at 817-617-3700 if you ever receive a call or email appearing to come from the Town of Pantego to verify the legitimacy of those requests. More information and FCC contact info for the FCC is in the link below.   https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id
