A new scam in Michiana seeks to take advantage of those who have lost a loved one.
Administrators at 1st Source Bank in Plymouth say one of their customers recently fell victim.
The woman had just lost her husband, and got a call from someone who claimed to be from Social Security.
The scammer said they wanted to help her get the most benefits, then got her credit card number and other personal info.
The victim ended up having to freeze her credit account to avoid losing money.
Bank administrators want to remind Michiana residents to never give out personal information over the phone.
