My parents received several phone calls within a 4 hr period asking if they had received their blue or red medicare card. First call was from a woman with a number that was local to their area in VA. Voice had heavy accent and there was loud music playing in the background. Second call was from a man with a number in CA. Voice with heavy accent and loud music playing in the background. The VA number has called a second time by the time I’m writing this. Luckily, my father did not let the call progress and hung up. He phoned me to see if I could find anything on the internet. Although no personal information exchanged, the caller did know my father’s name and address. From what I’ve found, no unsolicited calls should be made from government agency.

I was contacted by a "Medicare" representative who knew that I have back issues and have received a back brace in the past. He claimed that Medicare is going to send me a new one. When he asked for my new Medicare ID, I asked him why he was requesting it, since he’s calling from Medicare. He said that they had my old number and needed to verify with my new number. Needless to say, I told him that I wouldn’t do that and to give me a number to call back, on my own. He gave me another number which was not on the caller ID he called me on. As follows

"Hello, my name is Christie from the Medicare Office. Can you hear me?"

As soon as I answered "yes" the call ended. So, what did I sign up for, and am I going to be targeted in the future because of the "yes" answer?

I received a phone call from a man who said he was from Medicare. He said Medicare needed to verify my information to be sure their’s was correct. He asked me to read off all the information on my card. I (foolishly) did as he asked…including my social security number. Once he got my information, he said, "That’s all I need." and ended our conversation. Shortly afterwards, I realized I had made a mistake; but, it was too late.

Once we realized my mistake, we started the process to protect me from financial fraud and identity theft. We contacted my bank, the credit reporting agencies, the and the local police. I also wanted awareness of this type of fraud, so that others might not be taken in by this scammer.

Received a letter in the mail that looked like it was from Medicare, with a new card and they gave an 888-898-5181 number to call. When you call the number they want you to sign up with First Alert with a monthly fee of $49. This is not a new Medicare card and has no affiliation with Medicare.
