Type of a scam Phishing

Caller states, "Hi this is Joe, I'm a Medicare Advisor calling on a recorded line. Can you hear me ok?" There are other variations of what organization this same caller states he is calling from (depending on the phone number). From other reports I have read on similar calls from this scammer, after a response from the call recipient, the caller hangs up. This is highly suspected to be a phishing scam for "yes" responses which may be recorded to take advantage of the call recipient. Each time I block one of the 215-814-0*** numbers, I continue to get a call from a similar number.

They knew my name and my address and my social security number. She said was going to send me a booklet about a brace on page 145 or 175. She only spoke Spanish and when I asked for someone that can speak English to explain it to my wife, she said she would get a supervisor, but my wife felt it was a scam, so at this point I simply hung up the phone. I have gotten the call numerous times from the same number. When I try to call the number back, I get a busy signal. I also got 2 calls immediately after with the caller ID for Washington, DC.

I'm not exactly sure if this is a scam but I received a phone call from someone who identified themselves as someone from medicare and that they were calling from a recorded line. When I answered "yes" to respond, the person on the other end immediately hung up. I tried to call the number back but only received a recorded message about how to be put on their do not call list. I am worried that this may be one of those calls where they use your recorded yes to put frauduelant charges on an utility/credit card account.

The woman called stating she was calling customers who have medicare offering free braces for back, knee, wrist, foot and hand. I had just injured my knee so I questioned her further about the cost and who would be paying for the brace. She stated that this was a new medicare service and that the brace was free and would be delivered to my home by UPS. When she asked for my medicare #, I realized she didn't know if I was on medicare or not and if she was calling medicare customers for real she would know that. I ended the call.

Cold call from a female named Marie with "Medicare" to verify my name, address and phone number. I believe it was a version of the "yes" scam.

ScamPulse.com met with a consumer regarding a scam phone call. Consumer reports she received a call from someone with a heavy Indian accent claiming to be from Medicare to follow up on a leg/back pain claim that is non-existent. They were trying to reach her mom and trying to get her to answer medical questions. Consumer told them she did not believe he was from Medicare; her mom has never had back issues and he needed to stop calling. Scammer than reminded the consumer that he had all her personal information. The consumer then hung up.

This outfit calls me a minimum of 8-10 times a day. Normally, I do not pick these calls up, however, it was driving me crazy, so I did pick it up the other day. I screamed into the phone, WHAT DO YOU PEOPLE WANT? A woman asked if I was Pamela. I asked who this is. She stated her name was Anna from Medicare. I asked again what she wanted. She told me I had been approved for a free back or knee brace. I said I hadn't asked for one. I said ,no, I don't need those. Anna asked if anyone else in the household needed one. I said I didn't believe this was Medicare and to take my number off their list. She asks "oh, do you want me to stop your Medicare benefits?" I said NO, I don't and I said I would investigate this call and hung up. These people call from 8:30am to 9:00pm. I googled their number and found many many reports like mine. If you call me, please show your ID number or I won't answer. Or leave a message and I'll call you back. Thank you.
