Scam Alert! Attorney General Issues Warning about Scam

phone-scam-cropped_t670x470Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane recently issued a consumer alert about an apparent scam concerning the Affordable Care Act.

In recent days, people across the country have received calls asking for personal information, in order to obtain a “national medical card” from the government. No such card exists.

“Do not ever give out personal, healthcare, or bank account information over the phone, unless you initiated the call and you know who is on the other end,” said Kane.

Kane said if someone calls, offering to help you obtain this nonexistent national medical card, you should call the AG’s Health Care Hotline at (877) 888-4877. Any information you can provide—such as the name, telephone number, or location of the caller—will be very helpful.

You can learn more about this (and other scams) by visiting the attorney general’s website at www.attorneygeneral.gov.
