Telemarketing Medical Scam

Telemarketing Medical Scam — A new medical alert scam is targeting seniors nationwide, reports State Rep. Jim Cox (R-129). The unsolicited calls are pre-recorded messages stating that the senior qualifies for a free medical alert system or that someone has already paid for it.

The message instructs seniors to press a number on their keypad to connect with a live person, or to press a different number to disconnect the call or be removed from their list.

If you receive a call like this, do not press any buttons. Just hang up the phone.

These calls are not from a legitimate company. They are attempts to scam seniors by enticing them with a free device and then asking for personal information.
