"At the same time though, be on the lookout for scammers pretending to be from the Social Security Administration…
The scammers will often say your Social Security number is about to be suspended because of suspicious activity…
The Social Security Administration will never call to threaten your benefits or tell you to wire money or send cash."

The problem is that this particular scammer leaves a phonemail message! I got eight such calls a month ago on my cell phone, and eight identical messages were left. I had anything but peace that day.

Robo call-blocking phone and an app on the mobile that does the same. The result: zero of these calls. Phones never even ring unless it's a known number.

We use Phone Warrior. It's VERY effective!

That is our usual way but since the hailstorm in July and insurance claims, adjusters, painters, roofers, etc. - we need to answer for now so, again, if it is a scammer just hang up.
