Phone Scammers Using Shiawassee County Health Department Phone Numbers
Scammers Appear To Be Calling from Shiawassee County Health Department, Attempt To Gain Personal Information
The Shiawassee County Health Department (SCHD) has become aware of a phone scam using SCHD’s phone numbers to make calls. The caller claims to be with SCHD or from Medicare or Medicaid.
In both instances, the caller is asking for personal and confidential information.
SCHD’s phone number shows up on the caller ID, but the call is actually from a scammer, not SCHD.
There's more to the story! Keep reading!
If you receive a call and the person asks for confidential information hang up! SCHD says it believes this is a scam targeting the elderly to obtain sensitive information and that due to privacy reasons, the Health Department would NOT call and leave a message asking for personal information.
SCHD reminds residents NEVER to give out confidential information, such as account numbers, social security numbers or passwords to an unsolicited caller.
You can also call the main number at Shiawassee County Health Department if you are unsure or would like more information: 989-743-2318.
