Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Phone call saying they were from Medicare, wanting to send me back brace or knee brace. It was a local number to me. I asked them about that & they said it sometimes shows up as local. I asked several times if they were from Medicare, each time they said "yes". They had a lot of my personal information. I told them not to call me again.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Caller claimed to be from Medicare and wanted to send me a back brace free. He asked for birth date and Medicare ID (to "confirm" recipient identity) - he had my name, age, phone #. When asked, he gave his name as "Johnny Black". When asked "Why does Medicare think I need a back brace?", he said it was a new program.

The first call showed as "Private Caller." After he asked for my Medicare ID#, I hung up. He called back (again as "Private Caller"). I didn't answer, but checked the message, which was a second or two of background (call center?) noise. Message playback included the phone number above.

The person claimed to be from Medicare and offering my father a back brace. They asked about the clinic he goes to, the Dr and he gave them the last 4 digits of his social security number. They wanted his Medicare number, but he did not give it to them. This happened today so it is not known if this will impact his finances.

Supposed representative stated that she was with Medicare. She had a very strong Tagolog Philipino accent and my elderly grandmother replied yes to having back pain after the representative asked if she suffered from back pain and said Medicare, at no cost to my grandmother, will send and pay for a back support device.

They called saying they are helping Medicare by sending braces out for Medicare. They said they had the victim’s Medicaid number and cited the last four digits. Victim verified the last four but did not give any other information. She then hung up. They called four times in two days. Victim did pick up and immediately notified bank who suggest LifeLock for added security.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

At 1pm today, May 16, 2018, a call came in from someone sounding Hispanic who indicated she was with the National Pain Center. It was hard to understand her. I gave the call to my husband who is a paraplegic and suffers with chronic pain. I walked away and after the phone call I found out the following: She asked him for his name and address, which he provided, and asked if he was receiving Medicare assistance for pain. He said Yes. She identified herself as calling from the National Pain Clinic and that she would like to talk to him about a Medicare provided pain cream. She asked if he had chronic pain. He said Yes. She said they would send some cream for chronic pain relief at no charge and no shipping. It would arrive on Monday (May 21st). She verified his mailing address and then requested his Medicare #. My husband was in bed and told her he didn't have that available. She then asked for his social security number which he gave her, She indicated they could get his Medicare number by using his social security number. The conversation ended. Although we have not been harmed yet, I am reporting this because she got his S.S.# and I fear identity theft. My husband's thought process has been affected by the medications he takes. Under normal circumstances he would know not to give that information over the phone,.

Telephone call from scammer claiming to be a representative from Medicare. Scammer stated that Medicare was aware I had back or spine trouble (which I don't) and that they wanted to send me some type of back brace. The scammer had my mailing address and birthdate.

The scammer asked to speak with my mother who has been deceased for 6.5 years. I said that she has been deceased for a while and Medicare is aware of this. I asked what the nature of their call is. He said they were aware that she is deceased but had reason to believe that may be wrong. I told him that doesn't make sense and then he hung up on me. I called the number back from my caller ID (1-800-633-4227) and got Medicare.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

This lady called and said that she worked for Medicare and they had changed their policies and that they would pay for a brace for my shoulder. She asked me to verify my medicare number and social security number which she already had. She said I would be contacted the next day and get verification as to how to send the brace to my location including my address. I never heard back so I contacted Medicare and they said there had been no changes in their policies and they did not know anything about braces. She had my information already but is not associated with Medicare. Her phone number was blocked.
