    Yes. Likely the good old SSA scam.

    Looks like it. SSA or IRS scam. Just ignore it. Cops that plan to arrest people don’t text them.

  3. Yeah sure, I don’t think somebody from SSA/IRS will contact you just like that about legal proceedings.

    Absolutely a scam. Think about it, legal proceedings come in two flavours. One involves an arrest warrant and the police are highly unlikely to phone you and tip you off before executing one of those. The second requires you to be served with papers notifying you of the civil case against you. Again, they can’t serve you over the phone so them ringing you would be pointless.

    Most likely it’ll be some dude telling you a tall tale about a car full of drugs that was linked backed to your social security number somehow, threatening you with all kinds of legal consequences. But it’s OK because they can make it all go away if you give them gift cards.
