Medicare imposters want to steal your money. Don’t let them.
Pop quiz: If someone calls you asking for your bank account number, should you give it to them?
Answer: Never! Hang up – it is a scam!
Medicare will never call you and ask for your bank account information.
Here’s how a call like this should be handled:
- Don’t give out your bank account number – or any part of your Social Security number.
- Simply hang up the phone.
- Report your experience at 1-877-FTC-HELP or ftc.gov/complaint. Click on “Scams and Rip-offs”, and then “Imposter Scams”.
- If you have questions about your Medicare benefits, call 1-800-MEDICARE.
