CATTARAUGUS COUNTY, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about scammers trying to steal your personal information.

According to deputies, the scam artists are calling from, "Social Security Administration" asking people to press 1 for further communications that probe them for information.

The Social Security Administration confirms it NEVER calls people and that everything in the office is done by mail.

If you get a call like this, hang up then call your local police department.
