Scam Looking to Target Medicare Recipients
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) - Medicare recipients are the target of another scam lurking around South Carolina.
The Department of Consumer Affairs says a caller will ask for your social security or bank account number on an old Medicare card.
It's so you can receive a new one in January.
Do not share that information.
Officials have offered some other tips too:
-Never give out your SSN, bank account number or other sensitive information to someone you do not know.
-If you are suspicious about a caller, hang up and call a number that you know belongs to the organization/agency.
-Always be skeptical of anyone calling you regarding Medicare, especially when they’re asking for personal information.
-Warn your family and friends about the scam
