The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office is warning that another telephone scam targeting seniors is making the rounds.

The caller asks for the person’s income and Social Security number, and then will say the person might be eligible for more Social Security benefits.

The Sheriff’s Office advises people never to give personal information over the telephone, particularly a Social Security number.

They advise anyone who feels he or she has been the victim of this scam to call the state attorney general’s office in Watertown at 785-2444.
