Today, Dr. Oz and his scam-fighting duo are showing you how to avoid becoming the next target.  From promises of rebates to people claiming to be the IRS, we point out the red flags you need to listen for the next time an unknown number calls you!

Dr. Oz and his scam-fighting duo reveal whether you should hang on or hang up when getting this call allegedly from the Social Security Department.
