New York, NY (WIBX) – More than 20,000 senior citizens nationwide have been hurt by a new social security account scam.  

New York Senator Charles Schumer says scammers would call the Social Security Administration, provide a name and social security number and then have the benefits transferred into their own account.

Schumer wants the Social Security Administration to contact beneficiaries right away after a request to change bank accounts.

Joe Widelo of AARP says this scam can cripple seniors.
