BEWARE: Door-to-Door Medicare SCAM

05 March 2018

Please be aware that we have received reports of individuals and teams of people going door-to-door, telling residents they need to change their Medicare plan.  These people/scammers are asking for personal information, including Social Security numbers and bank account numbers. 

If this happens to you, DO NOT give them your personal information. 

Ask for their contact information, take whatever literature they hand out, tell them you will contact Medicare yourself directly. 

Please also take the time to call the Consumer Assistance Program to report these scammers and alert your neighbors and friends. 

The Consumer Assistance Program information can be found here:  https://www.uvm.edu/consumer/stopping-scams or by calling 802-656-3131.

 

Keep yourself and others safe!
