Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Had a call yesterday from someone claiming to be from Medicare (a Medicare representative) telling me that Medicare now covers the full cost of back and knee braces. They were looking for information to sign me up and inquiring further about my personal health history. That's when I hung up! The next day I read about this particular scam in our local newspaper.

Got a phone call from "Private Number" on caller ID...SAid I was qualified for Medicare Backbrace. Said I would get another call in 10 minutes to verify info, weight, waist size, height etc. Both callers had foreign accents. Second called showed up as caller ID Ada MI 616-227-4260...she asked questions about my United Healtvcare supplement..said I qualified for newest backbrace. Before we got anywhere near talking about Height Weight and Waist, she asked where my Social Security # was issued..and was I born in Colorado. She had Mty Address..clarifierd name, the started the hard push to get my Social Security Number...She said it would be the same as on my Medicare Card which I do not use nor can I find..I use my United Healthcare AARP Card. She said it would be the 9 digit Number followed by a letter. I did not feel comfortable giving my Social Security Number out over the phone to someone I do not know. It was overall suspicious, so I daid to just forget the backbrace...I was not going to give my Social Security Number over the phone to anyone.

I've received several calls supposedly from a company (no name given) that has gotten info from Medicare that my husband (who passed away last year) is eligible to receive a back brace or knee brace. I just tell them I'm not interested and hang up.

On Saturday, August 26 at roughly 10:30am, My elderly parents received a phone call from someone saying they were from Medicare. The caller told them that there was an issue with their Medicare coverage and then asked my father for his Social Security number. When my father refused, the caller threatened to cut off my parents Medicare and Social Security benefits. At that point my father hung up the phone.

Call stated they were Medicare updating information and was working with supplemental insurance companies. Had a foreign accent. Ask if I had supplemental insurance and asked for information on back of insurance card. They gave me a phone number of 864-146-5908 to call back and verify information. I asked them to send me the information in the mail that Medicare has my information. Tried to call number back 2 hours later and it had been disconnected, non working number. Have not received anything in the mail.

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.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

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.
