The Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a phone scam.

Officials say scam artists are calling people alleging they are with the Social Security Administration requesting those who receive the call to press 1 and provide personal information.

Everything in the social security office is done by mail, according to the Administration.

No one should receive phone calls from their office but if received residents are asked to call their local police agency.
