The scam involves someone calling the victim on the telephone and telling them they are going to be receiving a new Medicare card in the mail, according to a statement from the police department. The caller is asking the victim to verify their information by telling the caller their Social Security number and bank account information.
“If you feel that the call may be a scam get as much information about the caller as possible and call police to make a report,” the release states. “Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in America. Don’t fall victim to scams by giving out your personal information”
