CHARLESTON– The Attorney General’s Office is warning residents of a new scam targeting senior citizens.
A Medicare scam that seeks to steal personal and sensitive information is making the rounds.
Scammers will pose as a Medicare representative or an affiliate and ask for bank account, credit card, Medicare and/or Social Security information, and in some instances seek payment for your newly issued Medicare card.
More than a dozen West Virginia consumers report having received such calls in recent weeks.
Anyone with questions or concerns can contact the Attorney General’s elder abuse litigation and prevention unit at 304-558-1155 or HelpForSeniors@wvago.gov.
