Many people in Michigan have received one of these scam phone calls in the past 24 hours. You can hear what the call sounds like by listening to the audio recording below this article.
- Hang up. If someone calls claiming to be from Medicare, asking for your Social Security number or bank information to get your new card or new benefits, that’s a scam.
- Don’t give personal information to a caller claiming to be from Medicare. You can’t trust caller id. These calls can be spoofed so they look like they’re coming from Medicare even when they’re not. Before you give any personal information, initiate your own call to Medicare at 1-800-MEDICARE.
- Report the call. Report Medicare imposters at 1-800-MEDICARE and ftc.gov/complaint. The more they hear from you, the more they can help fight scams.
