The Copperas Cove Police Department is raising awareness of an ongoing scam.

The department said over social media on Tuesday that residents have been receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be from a social security office and demanding money.

The department says the real Social Security Administration will not call you and ask for money. They also do not take payments from iTunes Cards or Google Play Cards.

The Social Security Administration also does not have the authority to have someone arrested.

If you receive a call from someone like this, the department says to tell them you are calling the police and to hang up on them.

If you have any questions, you can call the department at 254-547-8222.
