Fraudulent Callers Claim To Represent Government Agencies

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Eastern North Carolina warns consumers to never provide private information to an unknown or unverified caller.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Eastern North Carolina warns consumers to never provide private information to an unknown or unverified caller. While callers may claim they are representing a verifiable organization, consumers should act with caution.

Recently, a man contacted consumers via telephone wanting to provide new social security and medical card numbers. Highlighted in the BBB Consumer Alerts, one consumer received a call from a man who told her every senior in the country is being issued a new medical card number. He had her name, address and telephone number, but needed her date of birth. In another case, someone claiming to be with Medicare called another consumer, and Medicare verified the call was not from its office.

?It can be very intimidating when you receive a phone call stating you must provide information in order to stay up-to-date with the government or other agencies,? says Beverly Baskin, president and CEO of the BBB of Eastern N.C. ?It is important to remember never to give personal information over the telephone and check with the BBB to make sure these calls are legitimate.?
