I received a phone call from a local phone number thinking it could be someone from my area. The foreigner was asking about information on my husband’s Medicare. I told him that Medicare does not call you! He asked when would be a good time to call back, I told him to give me his phone number, he hesitated & said to call the number on my caller id. I responded with, no you tell me the number you are calling from!! He gave me a number that wasn’t even a United States phone number. When I asked again for him to give me a legit phone number, he hung up on me!!

Call came in this afternoon with a 402 area code but I don't know where it was actually originated from. Caller spoke with a foreign accent (maybe Asian?; easy to understand) and said she was from Medicare and needed to verify some information with me because they were getting ready to replace our paper Medicare cards with new plastic cards with a chip in them. (New plastic cards with a chip in them sounded like a good idea to me but seemed suspicious since I had not heard anything about this on the news.) She had my full name and full birthdate and wanted me to give her the Part A Hospitalization Effective Date on my card which I refused but she said she had it and just wanted me to verify it with her so she gave me the effective date on my card, which I confirmed was correct. Then she said as the last step in verification, she needed me to give her my Medicare # on my card which I refused to do telling her I didn't know who she was and Medicare doesn't normally call. She gave an employee id # and tried to assure me she was from Medicare. I told her to give me the Part B Medical effective date, which she said didn't have anything to do with it. I told her to give me my Medicare # so I could verify it and she said she needed to enter it into the system from me. I said I was going to call the # on my card instead and she said I could do that but since we were at the last step of this verification, she would need to disable my Medicare until then and it would cost me $100 to re-activate it, of which i said No, Medicare does not do that. She asked to speak with my husband who I said wasn't home but she could call back later which she said she would. I called Medicare after we hung up and confirmed with them they are not sending out new plastic cards with chips in them and he (Jorge) was 100% sure it was a scam. I called to report it to see if they have received other reports of this and if not, to let them know as I don't want other seniors to fall into this scam since she sounded very professional and seemed legit since she had my Part A Hospitalization effective date, which I assume now is probably related to my birthdate. Of course she never called back.

I was called by a man who claimed to be doing a wellness check for Medicare . He said I qualified for a new device for pain. He said Medicare would be sending some kind of back compression device even tho I told him I had no back pain. He insisted it was free and wanted to also send something for my feet. I told him i didn’t have pain, but he said to keep them for the future. He then asked for my Medicare no. I gave it to him and he asked for my Doctors name, which I gave. I realized later that he should have had my number. I wanted to report it as I feel it was a scam to get my number.

The scammer identified himself as calling from Medicare and had my name which he asked if this was who he was speaking with. I unfortunately said "yes" and he proceeded to ask me if I was a senior citizen. At that point, I didn't answer his question, but did ask him what this call was in reference too. He then stated that Medicare was going to send me a package and he needed to see if he had my correct address, which he did have my correct address. I didn't answer his question about my address and I quickly hung up. I then called the number back that was on my caller ID and let it ring for about 10 times, but no one answered.

The scammer had a very heavy foreign accent and the phone number he called from was 504-833-9253.
