Staunton: Man impersonating SSA investigator tries to enter residence

staunton virginiaThe Staunton Police Department is investigating the report of a male impersonating an investigator from the Social Security Administration.

The male approached a residence in Staunton, displayed a silver badge and claimed that the citizen’s account had “fraud activity” and that police would be responding if he was not given money.

The male left the area after the citizen declined to speak with him further.

Social Security Administration employees and investigators will never go door to door requesting money or any form of payment. As a reminder, law enforcement will never contact you by phone to request money in lieu of arrest either.

There is no evidence to suggest this incident is related to the incident reported yesterday involving a white male impersonating personnel from the City of Staunton Public Works.

The suspect was described as a black male wearing a suit with a silver badge. The male was also described to have a heavy foreign accent. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call either the Staunton Police Department at 540.332.3842 or Crimestoppers at 1.800.322.2017.
