Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I received a phone call this morning from Medicare. The man was difficult to understand. The number in my caller ID was 440-997-8658. He asked if i had my new Medicare card yet or if I had my old one. I said I had my new card. He said a couple of things I could not understand. He started asking me about my height and weight. I told him he did not need that information. He was getting to personal. I hung up. I would never give any numbers out. It sounded like he was heading that way.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Received call from woman leaving me a message about a person I know in a nursing home, they gave the patients full name and stated that they needed information on re-certification of Medicare to continue her stay in nursing home, I am listed by patient as contact. I called woman back , voicemail was full, but she immediately called me back and gave me the same info she left on voicemail, I told her the patient doesn’t have anything and needs to stay where she’s at, the whole time this woman is chuckling so I ended the call and felt uneasy all nite, got up and went to the bbb site for scams, I realized there was no business name intro when called either only voicemail full, after checking the number it is also listed internationally as well, no vital verbal info was given out but I’m checking my accounts to be safe and alerted the nursing home that there internal records might have been hacked. I’ve since blocked this number but I’m sure they will find another, most of these calls from this number came in as unknown caller over a period of 2 weeks, when I didn’t respond they left the voice mail which them exposed the number from which they had been calling. Don’t know what financial damage they can do but don’t answer the voicemail messages no matter how detailed they are.

Type of a scam Phishing

I keep getting calls that my SSN is in jeopardy and that someone in Texas was using my SSN. I explained to him that I had never lived in SSN. He tried to get my SSN. I asked him to tell me what is this about? He told me "since you're not going to give me information, I'm not going to share any information with you". He told me "there is no reason for me to have his name" if "I won't give him my information". He said he was with Medicare. I live in Springfield, MO.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Received a call and the caller said she was calling from Medicare . She first tried to verify my name and age asking rapidly if she was right. Next, she wanted to know if I had leg pain or joint pain which I had reported to Medicare and I said no. She then gave an inaccurate social security number with which I am sure she was trying to get me to give my actual Social Security number which I did not reveal. I asked her what the call was about and she started to repeat the leg pain and joint pain nonsense. I could here a lot of noise in the background like a call center. I stopped my conversation and ended the call. The call number appeared to be from my local area!

I just had a young guy come out here, less than 6 foot tall, couple hundred pounds, and drove a fairly new gray challenger. He had a girl with him who was short with glasses. He assured me that it would cost me $144 a month for Medicare. He came to my house in person with a shirt and tie on. His Challenger did not have Medicare on it. I called the for help.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I picked up a landline call as the caller id was a local Omaha number and the last two digits were 00.

Man with foreign accent told me he was calling from the Center for Medicare and he wanted to know if I had received the new plastic Medicare card.

I lied and said yes, which made him pause, but he said it hadn't been mailed yet because he needed information from me first.

I kept asking what is this about, thinking he was trying to sell Medicare Advantage.

He kept giving me his "government ID number."

He said he had all my information in front of him on a screen. I said if it's on the screen then why call me. He said he needed verification that the numbers I would give him would match. I said, you read me the numbers. Then I told him I would check out the Medicare website and hung up. I'm worried others would answer the questions and I don't know how the info is used to cheat the government. Thanks for this service.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I was scammed yesterday. I received a recorded call from Medicare on my home phone. It stated we have been trying to reach you. Press one to speak with a representative. I pressed one and a woman came on the line. She said hi and called me by my first name.We have all these different options for Medicare. She asked me to get my insurance card to go over benefits. I said i could not see it. Then she asked for my Social Security number. When I gave her the entire number she hung up. I pushed redial and tried to call the number back. It disconnected. I had my son check the caller ID. He said the number was unknown. I do not have the phone number. I called Social Security and reported it. They put in fraud report. I asked if they would take my Social Security. They said no. I called my bank also.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Caller said they were from Medicare and Medicaid and asked if I was interested in purchasing Medicare. I know that’s not how it works. You would get a letter not a phone call. I told the caller “are you sure you have the right person, I’m way too old for Medicare”. Then the caller just hung up.
