Medicare Scam Warning Issued For Seniors

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-- The better business is warning senior citizens to protect their medical information.

The BBB says a 75-year-old woman received a call from a man identifying himself as an "officer," who told her that her Medicare was not good. The man told the woman a new, free one had been made for her.

When the woman questioned him, he said he was with a company in Las Vegas. He also asked for the final three digits of her bank account.

The BB reminds people Medicare will not call you about new cards, and will not call to ask for sensitive personal information.
