IT STARTS WITH A CALL FROM 281-324-1951

CALLER SAID THEY WERE FROM MEDICARE AND WERE CALLING TO "REAFFIRM/UPDATE" THEIR INFO ONE ME.

I TOLD HER THAT I DON'T KNOW WHO SHE IS AND I WOULD CHECK HER OUT AND GIVE A CALL BACK. SHE GAVE ME A CALL BACK PHONE NUMBER OF 281-324-5800 and said IT WAS IN "CROSBY, TEXAS". (Would CROSBY, TEXAS have the same area code as we do in HOUSTON, TEXAS???? I THINK NOT!!)

CALLED HHS @ 1-800-447-8477 TO REPORT POSSIBLE IDENTITY THEFT ATTEMPT. REAL CMS REP TOLD ME THEY WOULD **NEVER CALL BY PHONE FOR THIS INFO**!! HE TOOK DOWN MY INFO AND IS INVESTIGATING.

IF YOU GET A CALL FROM ANYONE ASKING FOR YOUR MEDICARE INFO CALL THE 800-447-8477 NUMBER ABOVE... IT TAKES A WHILE BUT GO FOR REPORTING OF AN ATTEMPT AT FRAUD.
