Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Susan Collins, the Chairman of the Senate Aging Committee, sat down with CBS “This Morning” to discuss the Committee’s ongoing efforts to combat the Social Security impersonation scam, which cost Americans nearly $38 million in reported losses in 2019 alone.


This morning, Senator Collins held a hearing to examine how the Social Security scam operates, explain what is currently being done to address it, and explore what more can be done to stop it.  Machel Andersen, who testified this morning at Senator Collins’ invitation, and her husband, Utah State Representative Kyle Andersen, shared how they were robbed of $150,000 through this scam.
