Possible SCAM or Attempted Identity Theft Taking Place Locally

Local resident reported receiving unusual mailing. Letter gave public information about death benefit amount paid by Social Security. The letter was requesting a written reply from the recipient to include the name, address, date of birth, and possibly other information for both that person and spouse.  In return this business claims they will send a gift card to a retailer in our area.

The letter apparently did not disclose the name of a legitimate business this was mailed from.  We suggest anyone receiving such mailing to be very cautious as it may very well be a scam and/or attempt of identity theft.

Please be safe and protect your family and your money.
