I received a phone call from someone with a foreign accent who told me I was getting a new Medicare card and he wanted to verify some information. He asked to confirm my current address. I told him I had moved and he asked me why. That made me suspicious.
He then asked if my Medicare checks go directly to my bank and then asked me for my banking information. I told him I will not give out that information to anyone, especially over the phone, and hung up on him. He then called back.
My husband answered the phone, and the man tried to get him to give out our banking information. I told my husband it was a scam and to hang up. He did.
Please let everyone know neither Medicare nor your bank will ever call you and ask for such information.
