It is very unlikely that the Social Security administration would make this type of phone call and more likely that it was a scam. You should never provide personal information by telephone unless you are certain that you are speaking with the appropriate person. In this matter, if a government agency was attempting to contact you, they would probably not do so by calling you.
Mr. Morgan and Mr. Caraciolo have given you excellent advice. You should heed their words. In addition, if you have caller ID on your telephone, you should report the number to the proper authorities (FCC, SSA, local law enforcement, state Attorney General's Office, local district attorney, etc.)
