Medicare Scam Call/Llamada Fraudulenta de Medicare

May 17, 2023 0
We received a call this morning from a patient who had just received a Medicare scam call. The call came from a local cell phone number and the caller had the patient’s correct name, address, and other information. She asked the patient to read out her Medicare number so they could send her a new card. The patient became suspicious and the caller hung up.
Please be aware that Medicare will NEVER call you to ask for your credit card number, and you should never give your Medicare number to anyone. Thank you to our patient for alerting us and the City of Fort Bragg Police Dept about this scam. Neighbors helping neighbors!
Recibimos una llamada esta mañana de una paciente que acababa de recibir una llamada fraudulenta de Medicare. La llamada provenía de un número de teléfono celular local y la persona que llamó tenía el nombre, la dirección y otros datos personales de la paciente. Le pidió a la paciente que leyera su número de Medicare para que pudieran enviarle una nueva tarjeta. La paciente empezó a sospechar y la persona que llamó colgó.
Tenga en cuenta que Medicare NUNCA le llamará para pedirle el número de su tarjeta de crédito, y nunca debe darle su número de Medicare a nadie. Gracias a nuestra paciente por alertarnos a nosotros y al City of Fort Bragg Police Dept sobre esta estafa. ¡Vecinos ayudando a vecinos!
