Scam Description

My mom received a phone call (early afternoon) from a person named Dave. She told me he was very polite and talked loud and slowly for me when I told him I had trouble hearing. He told her that he can get her an extra $400 on her monthly social security check. He just needed some information. My mom proceeded to give him her full name, birthdate, mother’s maiden name, social security number and the name of her local bank. She then told me he started talking faster and she could not understand him so she hung up on him. After a few minutes she called her bank and told them what happened. Later in the evening she told us what happened. I immediately signed her up for Norton LifeLock and canceled her two credit cards. Following morning I notified her two financial institutions. As far as we now she has not been compromised as of yet.
