Tells you they have information on you. The caller says he she is a Specialist under Medicare!! When asked if the company is a private or government company, the call er tries to fudge. Keeps saying he she is a specialist under medicare! All false.
Told the caller to remove my name for list. I am on a no call list. Told the callers off that they are scammers and I will sue them. They still keep calling.
Never give your Medicare and any other information to anybody who call you who you do not know.
Tell them to give the name address of their company, and a phone number where you can reach them
Next ask if the company is registered with the state.
They will hang up on you.
