Beware Of Medicare Scams

If you're on Medicare--be on alert if you answer an unfamiliar number.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, scammers are calling people and claiming to be issuing them a new Medicare card. All they need: your bank account and routing number.

The scammers appear to know the name, address and other personal information of the person they are calling, giving an air of legitimacy to the call. But don't be fooled--it's a scam. The FTC says government organizations and legitimate groups will have all the information they need prior to calling, and will never call to ask for personal information.

The calls seem to be coming from a 402 area code, which is out of Nebraska.
