> Scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of 
> birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the 
> arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your 
> identity was just stolen. 

> The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including 
> Oklahoma,??Illinois, Colorado, AZ and more. This (swindle) is
