The Upshur County Emergency Citizens Communications Facebook page posted a warning on Sunday about a mail scam that appears to be from the Social Security Administration. 

According to the post, a letter is being sent out to people that seems to be from the Social Security Administration. It states that you have a telephone appointment and need to call the agency. 

The mailing address will appear correct, and your social security and phone number will be incorrect. The goal of the call is to get your correct personal information. 

Upshur County ECC says do not give them personal data. The letter appears to be legitimate, but it is a scam.
