Medicare and Social Security scams continue to be a big problem targeting seniors and the elderly.
Rockwood’s Mary Kau believes she was the target of a recent scam attempt.Someone called and asked her for information, saying she was going to be sent a new Medicare card.
“In order to verify who I was, they wanted verification of my bank account,” Kau said. “They said, ‘Go get your checkbook.’ I said I don’t feel comfortable.”
When she said she was going to call and check with Medicare, the caller hung up.
