Senior scam alert

A late night phone call was strange. The man never told me who he was or who he represented. Just stated that my new medical card was ready to mail and all new cards would be sent to all seniors.

He asked if I was a senior and repeated my name and address to me. My name and address and phone number are in the phone book. I got suspicious. I heard noise in the background like a large telemarketing place. I said no. I questioned why I need a new medical card. Click, he hung up.

So beware and never give out information to any caller, ever.
