    • Sheriff Ronnie Fields would like to inform citizens about robocalls that are designed to trick you. Here are a few ways to keep your information safe:

      • Know your social security number is NOT going to be suspended

      • The Social Security Administration will never call and ask you for your number

      • Whatever you do, do NOT confirm the last four digits of your social security number to anyone who calls

      • Remember, if someone asks you to wire money, pay with a gift card, or send cash, that person is a scammer, which is a sign to hang up before you become a victim of identity theft.
