My mother has been getting calls from 213 261-5271, Medical Supply, claiming that she has not filled out her Medicare questionnaire and will lose all her Medicare benefits unless she gives the woman over the phone all the information she needs which is her social security number, Medicare card number. She verbally badgers and intimidates my mother. My mother is 78 years old.

Three (3) calls today from "Medical Supply" trying to get me to file a claim for an orthopedic brace for me aching knees or back. Point of fact: I have neither malady. Both my wife and I suggested, using very colorful, language that they cease and desist from calling us. During all calls we informed the callers we were on the "National Do Not Call" list we considered these calls nuisances and they were disturbing our evening; we artfully suggested where they could place their brace and hung up.

They call several times each day and ask for me by name. They claim to represent MediCare then later say they work with Medicare to pay for their product. They claim I have a bad back or knee and need a brace. They refuse to give any information on their company. No address, no email address, no web site, phone numbers: 614-407-5507, 614-407-5576, 614-407-5580

All have a very foreign accent. They at first say I qualify for Medicare to pay for a brace then ask for my information to make sure I qualify. I signed up for the National Do Not Call List and have repeatedly asked them to put me on their Do Not Call List. Nothing stops these people.

I have been getting calls from this company every day asking me if I am having pains or his company can give me some benefits. I ask him not to call me again and he was very demanding that I buy what they was selling. He told me he was going to be calling me again Tuesday and Wed, and said he was calling from a Medical Supply. I got his phone number from my caller ID and reported it to the FTC

their phone number is 470-233 7609.

This number keeps calling me multiple times a day for days now. It is either a man or a woman with a foreign accent. They keep asking, "hello, hello, are you there?" They want me to order a back brace, a knee brace, a neck brace; all kinds of medical stuff. They claim they are calling from Medicare. I can’t fully understand what they are saying, so I just keep telling them that I do not need the items or else I don’t answer. They need to stop.

I’m not sure this is worth reporting but I have no way of actually identifying this scam caller. This caller from Medical Supply knew my name, age and social security # and was attempting to get me to sign up for a DNA test “authorized” by Medicare. The calling number was 614-407-5576 and according to the search I made is out of Westerville.

 I started getting calls a few months ago saying our prescription for the back pain was ready for pickup. They have just started recently calling me from what look like other companies on the caller ID, but when I pick up thinking it’s another business, it’s Medical Supply trying to get me to get a back brace they say that Medicare now covers. They were also saying for pain medications as well.

Receive several calls daily regarding medicare eligibility for DNA (genetic) testing kits and/or knee braces that will be paid by Medicare. Unsure if company is located in the USA because phone reps have foreign accents. They use several different fake phone numbers and will continue to call even when told that you are not interested and you are aware of the scam. Obviously targeting seniors. Extremely aggressive and annoying.

Person says they want to send me medical supplies. I have told them repeatedly that I do not want medical supplies and do not need them. When I ask them to not call back or to put my number on their do not call list, they threaten me saying I will be sorry and I will regret it. The caller also has threatened saying I have broken the law by not accepting their services and not wanting them to call back. They are very aggressive and call many times every week. The caller does yell repeatedly while threatening.

Getting unwanted calls from a company the calls itself ‘Medical Supply’ trying sell back braces, wheelchairs and other health items. These scammers call from various phone numbers and always have a foreign accent. I can hear the other telemarketers scamming others in the background. They always say you qualify to get free medical supplies through medicare, but try to get credit card and social security number. Beware – it’s a scam to steal your ID.

I was called twice by the above number. The person spoke with an Indian accent and said he was calling on behalf of medicare for help with pain management. I told him I was not interested and hung up the phone. Two days later they called again. When I said that Medicare does not make these types of phone calls, and that he was a scam, he hung up on me.

i received a call from a person calling himself Dan saying he was from Medical supply connected to Medicare.

Said i was to receive a free back & knee brace since my records show I have Sciatica problems, having heard

that term Sciatica made me think he was from medicare.

After a few questions he mentioned it wouldn’t cost me a thing that the back brace & knee were free. He also mention a agent would contact me for more info with in 24 to 72 hrs. again that didn’t feel right, what made me hang on a listen to this man was I was in pain at the time & wasn’t thinking with a clear head, Agent never called.

Before we hung up he asked for the last 4 digits of my Social, which i gave him, stupid mistake, Needless to say I lost a lot of sleep that night worrying about what he could do. Since I’am a Senior on a fixed income, what we have

is all we have!! Please help!! My husband & I are up in age & we can’t loose everything, which is very little before we pass. Thank You for taken time to read this.

These people call me about once sometimes twice a week. They say I am a Medicare card holder,which I am not. They say they have heard I have pain from my neck down to my legs, which I do not. When I ask questions about their company they always hang up the phone on me. I have asked them every time to stop calling me and put me on their do not call list.

Medical Supply calls every day, sometimes twice a day saying they are calling because I am on medicare and have back or knee pain and have requested a brace. Everytime I ask for my # to be removed from their list. This last time today, the jerk says "but aren’t you in pain?" I want to get rid of these calls. They range in time from 10 am to 6 pm and appear to be out of Brewster NY.

Just recently a new caller Decision Support same as above 1-817-665-8325

They claimed to have this pain cream to help with back and joint pain. They said that it was free except for a copay. They had my address which I did not verify, and could they could not tell me who my insurance was through. After listening to them for a couple of minutes trying to get me to verify my information (which I did not), I just hung up.

On 12-12-17 I received a phone call from an unidentified male, heavy foreign accent, who said I qualified for a back brace from medicare. Caller ID said Medical Supply and Ph number 720-361-1927. I have had 2 back surgerys and the person seemed be know that I had back. problems. They asked the size of the brace and medicare pay for it and send it to me. I gave them my address and they asked for my medicare number which I gave them the last 4 numbers (dumb of me). They said someone would call back between 24 and 48 hours to verify the info. I haven’t received that call yet but I suspect that they would try and get more info from me. I have Life Lock and I will inform them of this. Informed local Sheriff in fraud department of the incident.
