OPM SCAM ALERT: www.opm.gov from Carrie Kuester
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has issued a Scam Alert to all Federal Retirees regarding a scam in which imposters are contacting federal annuitants to try to steal money from them. This is how the scam works: An imposter claiming to be an OPM employee contacts a retired federal employee and threatens to cut off his/her retirement payments and tells them that a magistrate will prosecute. Then the imposter demands an immediate payment. The imposter can sound quite convincing and my actually use real names and titles. They may also have identifiable information on the retiree they contact.
Remember, OPM never makes phone calls such as these to retired federal employees, so DO NOT fall for any such phone calls.
If you have encountered or may encounter one of these scams, please report it to the OPM Office of Inspector General by calling the hotline at 877-499-7295 or use the OPM online complaint form which can be found on the IG Section of the OPM website www.opm.gov Please share this alert with your federal retiree friends who may not have e-mail.
