An unwanted call from this Virgina VOIP number arrived today. When the answering machine picked up, the caller hung up. Robocallers (unlawful telemarketers) hate reaching answering devices while they are trolling the phones, desperately seeking gullible schmucks to victimize.
Many posters report the caller is Medicare Seniors, possibly one of many Medicare crooks who collectively steal $60 billion per year from taxpayers by scamming the system. Telecriminals like this are the reason you should LET YOUR ANSWERING MACHINE TAKE THEIR PATHETIC CALLS.

Says to be from Medicare. Told her we don't need Medicare and we are on the do not call registry. She said because we have private insurance we can take her call 🙄 Hung up and blocked
Didn't answer since I didn't recogonize the number. Called back from work line, sounded like rotary dialing and message "791, the number you dialed is no longer in service". I have blocked and reported the number.

They said their company is "Senior Medical Supplies" of Fairfax, VA
They were very pushy. Insisted that I buy a back brace, and guaranteed it would all be OK'd by my primary care Doctor. I kept them on the line, trying to get all the information that I could without telling any of mine. I said that I will nott give out information, especially medical information to anyone, especially over the telephone.
I've reported this caller and what information that
I could obtain to The Oklahoma Attorney General.
Called 3 times in 24 hours, but no voicemail. The area code is from Virginia. When I try to call back it says the number is not in service

Definitely a SCAM call, tries to portray they are affiliated with Medicare and 'following up' on recent activity etc.

Called this morning, but didn't leave message. Blocked.
This number called me in Florida, I did not answer. No message left.
Knew my first name, and enquired about my Medicare application status, and whether I was also in need of Medicaid....was a bad connection, because I was in a metal building, but that was the gist of it. I have not made a Medicare application nor am I eligible for Medicaid or disabled. He was apologising for the confusion very nicely actually, when I hung up. Blocked.
Called me in Minnesota, did not answer. Probably tweaked out scammed based on these reports
Called early morning , appeared to be from VA..didn't answer..do not answer if I don't recognize number, so googled the phone number and blocked.
Called before 6:00 am. Leave me alone. Do not call list means absolutely nothing.

Called asking about my husband's back condition. Again, thick accent. My husband has no back condition. He became testy when I asked him for his credentials and challenged him.
He called with a thick accent wanting to get into my medical condition which I do not have. I told him not to call back and hung up the phone. He continued to call me back 2x. I threatened to call the police because he was harassing me.
