Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Caller said he was from Medicare and had free benefits. Just needed to verify information starting with my birthdate. I asked if this could be done online, and he said no. Only by phone. Accent might indicate that he is not in US.

Received a telephone call from an individual with a heavy accent claiming to be "Mike from Medicare" and asked for the last four digits of my SS number. He denied trying to sell anything and refused to give any purpose for his call if I wouldn't give him the information. At that point I ended the call

813-525-6225 called me 3 times in an hour without leaving a voicemail. I usually don't answer calls from unknown numbers but because they called 3 times I picked up. The phone said Bardalese, Lesman and the caller was a woman with an accent. The woman said she heard my husband has a knee/back issue and Medicare now has new products to help him with that. My husband doesn't have knee or back issues so I knew it was a scam. I was very careful not to say "yes" to anything and just told the woman I had to hang up.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

I received a call from the above number telling me that they were calling from Medicare. They offered me braces for free for my knee, back and ankle, even though I didn't need any braces. I told them this and they said they would send them for my future use. The first gentleman asked me for the first 5 digits of my Medicare Card, which is the first 5 digits of my Social security number, which I did provide to him.Then they gave me to a doctor and he asked me all kinds of questions about pain and medications. He did not seem to know any of the medications I am on, which I found odd as well. I was then transferred to another individual who wanted to send me a gift card. I had to pay for the gift card with a credit card which I refused and then they hung up. I have reported the incident to my Bank, to Medicare and the Federal Trade Commission.

Received a call from a man with a mid-Eastern accent saying he was calling from Medicare to see if I had received my new card. There was a lot of "call center" type noise in the background. I asked if I could call back and he gave me the same number he had called in on, said his ID # was MC5521 and his name was Moses McDaniel. I checked the number on whitepages and its says it's scam. This need to be brought to the public's attention. I'm not sure what they are asking for, but someone is going to think it's legit and give out information they shouldn't!

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

This week we received 2 phone calls from someone with a heavy Indian or Pakistani accent claiming to be from Medicare and asking if I had received my new Medicare card. They asked for me by name, so probably already knew I am of the right age to be on Medicare. The scam is that if one says the new card has not come, they just need to know my social security number and date of birth to send a new card right away.

My partner has answered the phone on both of these calls and simply strings the caller along until the scammer hangs up. But I think this scam needs some publicity.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

guy with Middle eastern accent called with lots of "call center-like" noise in the background. He told me he's from medicare and trying to update my information for 2019 benefits. Asked me the best number to reach me and named the number he had just dialed. He did not know my name. He told me I lived in WI, and asked if that was correct. I told him I wasn't going to answer that. I asked him why he was calling and he said he needed to send me an EOB for 2019 healthcare. He then asked me who my primary Dr was. I didn't answer, and then he asked if I had seen my Dr in 1 month or 2 months ago, I said I didn't know. He then asked me who my Dr and what facility it was, to which I responded that I did not need to disclose that information. He then hung up on me.

CALLED MY 84 YEAR OLD MOTHER AND CLAIMED TO BE WITH MEDICARE. THEY HAD HER MEDICARE NUMBER AND ASKED HER TO CONFIRM. SHE CONFIRMED THE NUMBER AND THEY TOLD HER THEY WERE SENDING A BACK BRACE. LUCKILY THE NUMBER ON HER MEDICARE CARD IS NOT HER SS NUMBER. SHE COLLECTS ON MY DECEASED FATHER'S BENEFIT. NOT SURE WHAT WILL HAPPEN FROM THIS BUT I KNOW ITS A SCAM.

Wierd call. Asked for new and old Medicare card numbers, which I stupidly gave her. Wanted to send me a free back brace from Medicare for prevention of lower back pain. Said another caller would follow up within 1/2 hour to send the back brace at no cost to me. Wanted to know my pain level between 7 and 9. I told her sorry I just don’t have that much pain.

Type of a scam Healthcare/Medicaid/Medicare

Caller ID said 1-800-MEDICARE. Woman asked for me by name and asked if my address was (then she gave my address). She asked if I had received my new Medicare card. I said yes. She said she was calling to update my coverage, that the call was being recorded, then asked some health questions (if I had diabetes, high blood pressure, height, weight). Then she asked my waist measurement. When I questioned why she was asking, she repeated that my information had to be updated. I told her I was concerned that I was being scammed. She offered to give me her license number. I told her I was feeling uncomfortable and that I was going to hang up, and I did. She immediately called back and said my Medicare was going to be canceled. I hung up again and called Medicare. The agent said no one had called me from there, and that they would never ask for that information over the phone.
