Wallace Miller has learned that anonymous scammers posing as ARCHER, the 3M settlement administrator, have been reaching out to some clients by phone. These calls may appear to come from ARCHER’s official number, but they are not official calls. The callers impersonate ARCHER to ask for personal information including the client’s social security number and date of birth.
The FBI is looking into attempted fraud and identity theft but, in the meantime, be vigilant about protecting your valuable information. As of earlier this week, you should not be asked by ARCHER to share your full social security number over the phone.
If you believe you’ve been contacted by a scam caller, hang up and contact your legal team at Wallace Miller. Be careful about what you post online about your claim or identity, as sharing information about your claim increases the risk that you’ll be targeted by scammers.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if you believe you may have been contacted by a scammer, reach out to our law firm at (312) 634-6510.
