Part D phone scam

Send a link to a friend

[March 06, 2012]  The Delaware SMP reported a scam this week in which a caller claims to be verifying that the person they are calling is enrolled in Part D. The caller asks the person for his/her address, phone number, and banking information.

Medicare is not making any calls to verify Part D enrollment, and if they were, they would not need to obtain any personal information. Watch out for this and other similar phone scams where callers claim to be "from Medicare" in order to get your Medicare number or bank account information -- these are simply identity thieves who will use those numbers to steal from you!
