Type of a scam Identity Theft

Received 2 calls...different numbers and persons...asking if I received the new "black & white" Medicare Card. Said the old red, white, & blue card will be ineffective shortly. Asked me to get the old card to provide information thereon. Of course, I did not do so, as I know exactly what they were after. But, I am concerned that other seniors my not realize that this is a scam to obtain personal information.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Using a 419 area code, a Medicare “advocate” has been calling to get us to get heart tests or genetic testing for cancer. We are told Medicare will pay for it. We are told to press a number if interested or 9 to be taken off the caller list. I only answer because it is a 419 number and many doctor’s offices call with employees using their cell phone numbers. I am not about to press any number. We just hang up. We can’t block it because the number changes.

I received 2 calls asking to provide my Medicare number and name to replace my "old" paper card for a new plastic "chip" card. I refused to do so. The call came from 419-231-0764. The man calling had an accent similar to India friends of mine.

male with heavy sub-continent accent (Indian or Pakistani?) who knew my name asked whether I had received a new Medicare card in the past few days. I said no. He then said that my card had expired. I feigned incredulity, and he asked me to get my card and recite my number. At that point I told him to [censored]-off, hung up, and wrote this report.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

On 2.2.21 I got a call from someone I thougth was Medicare. He said his name was David but he was a foreigner. His phone number is 855-356-4019. He said he was working with Medicare to reduce prescription drug costs. I gave him my Medicare number and my Social Security number. He said he would mail an application and I would get it in 3 weeks. David gave me a number to call back and when I did, I talked to a woman who said she hd gotten so many calls. I told her she was a scammer. She told me not to call back or she would report me to the police. I told her you go right ahead and do that. I have reported the caller to the bank and the police.

Caller said I qualified for a brace at no cost to me, but wanted my personal info. If calling from Medicare, they should have it. My doctor didn't know anything about it.

Just got off the phone with two scammers. The second guy was a supervisor who came on the phone when the first guy couldn't seem to close the deal. Details:

Caller ID said Telemarketer.

Both foreign accents. I couldn't catch the names and could barely understand the first guy.

They said they were from the Cardiac Test Center or something like that. Wanted to send me a cardiac test kit covered by Medicare (no cost to me), but needed to verify that at least two people in my family (me, two other blood relatives) have a history of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or some other heart problem.

They kept asking me about my own history and family members going back to grandparents.

I told them I've been diagnosed with slightly high blood pressure and cholesterol, neither serious enough for me to be prescribed medication.

I told them my brother had some kind of heart problem, but I'm not sure what. They did their best to get me to say one of the aforementioned conditions.

They asked about uncles and other family members.

Somewhere along the way, they asked about personal or family history of cancer. I told them my mother died of it, but that didn't seem to qualify me. The language barrier was a problem at that point.

I finally said my father died from a stroke and that seemed to qualify me.

At that point, they verified my address - they already had it.

Then they asked for info off my Medicare card and I hung up.

They were so insistent on getting me to say that two family members had heart problems that my guess is they would actually submit a claim for the test kit. If it was simply a ruse to convince me they were legit, they wouldn't have been so persistent.

I asked what I would do with the kit and the guy explained I would take a swab from my cheek and (I think he said) send it to them and they would produce a report for my doctor describing my propensity for heart problems.

This call used our area code. Woman’s name was Chrissy and she stated she was on a recorded call from Medicare and she asked “Can you hear me?” I immediately hung up and came to this site to report it.

Caller speaks very fast and is very pushy. They know your name and ask you to verify it. They said that Medicare will be sending out new cards, a plastic one with a chip to replace the paper card. I think they said something about I was notified by mail but since I didn't respond they are calling and it's my last chance. They verify the date on your card that it became active, so they know this as well! Then they ask you for your MEDICARE number! DON'T EVER GIVE OUT THIS NUMBER!!! She said she needed it and it would be replaced with a new number. I refused to provide it, so she put someone else on the phone - her supervisor. He repeated that my number was needed. They were very pushy and you could hear lots of chatter in the background. I told the man that I never give out the number and he said it would affect my benefits. I refused and hung up.

got a call from people claiming to be medicare. stated that they wanted to sell me medical equipment. they had majority of my information so i thought that it was legitimate. Did not give them extra info because it just didn't seem right for medicare to be calling me about equipment i don't need.

This person called my Dad's cell phone asking for his Medicare number to receive a saliva kit. He also talked about the vaccine. My dad said he was going to get his Medicare number and call back in 5 min. The guy called back and my dad asked him why he needed his Medicare number. The guy on the phone said he already had it so it didn't matter. And my dad asked him to read off his number and he did have it! My dad said that the guy was calling from West Florida but called from a Tennessee area code. My dad realized it was a scam and hung up.
