If you receive a call with a recorded message, there’s a good chance it’s a scam. Don’t rely on caller ID, numbers can be easily spoofed, making it look like a call is from a government agency like the Social Security Administration or from a Campus number.
Be on the lookout for common phone scams like these. If someone calls and asks you to hand over personal information, wire money, or pay with a gift card, don't engage - just hang up.
