Is the person calling you really from Medicare?

Posted: Updated:

The Evansville Police Department has received complaints from residents about a telephone call asking for personal information.

The calls were received on the morning of the 15th. The caller claimed to be associated with Medicare. The caller stated they needed bank account info and a social security number in order to activate a new Medicare card.

We are reminding the public that they should never give out that type of information to someone who contacts them via telephone or email. If you need to take care of an issue with Medicare, your bank, Social Security, or any other agency, you should contact them yourself.

We have not been notified of anyone who has given the info to the caller or of any fraudulent transactions.
