SCAM ALERT: Medicare Impostors

According to the Federal Trade Commission there is a new scam on the rise. Scammers are now calling and impersonating Medicare workers. They will claim that they need to verify your bank account number. They sound very sound convincing and act like it is an urgent matter.
Some of the scammers may even know the first few numbers of your account, and ask you to verify the rest. If you give them the rest of your number, they will use it to access your account to take your money.
The callers may say they lost your information and need it to deposit funds, provide additional benefits, or send you a new Medicare or prescription card. They will assure you there’s no charge and threaten that your benefits will be cut off if you don’t give them your bank account information right away.
This is a scam to steal your money. Medicare will never call you and ask for your bank account information.
