Telephone Scam Identifies Themselves As A Medicare Employee

The town of Carroll said there is an ongoing telephone scam in which the caller identifies themselves as a Medicare employee and is seeking to upgrade Medicare cards. “Please be advised, that Medicare does not conduct any type of phone solicitation regarding your Medicare card or your Medicare account,” the town stated. “If you should get a call of this nature, please report the fraud associated with this type of call to the State Police,” Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Department or to the town of Carroll Police Department and by no means provide the caller with any of your sensitive information or background data of any kind. Medicare does not call their recipients via telephone and that should serve as a clear warning that something is amiss and should subsequently reported to the proper authorities.
