Medicare Scam in PennsylvaniaCumberland county officials announced today that there is a phone scam targeting Medicare beneficiaries in their area.
Callers, claiming to work for the government's health insurer for senior citizens, insist they must issue a second Medicare card. All that's needed, the caller insists, is a senior's bank account information.
Once again, remind your elderly parents not to give out any personal or financial information over the phone or to anyone they don’t know has a legitimate right to it. All too often, these people are sweeter than they are wise.
