BEWARE -- FAKE GENETIC TESTING SCAM!!
Scammers are trying to get beneficiaries to give them your Medicare numbers -- in return for a kit with a swab that detects hidden medical conditions. THIS IS BOGUS!!
Please asks seniors (and senior center staff) to report any incident to 1-800-Medicare so they (Medicare) can look
for a pattern and take action.
Go to https://www.aarp.org/money/scams-fraud/info-2019/dna-testing-scam.html for more information at present. EOEA is developing an article for COA newsletters.
Thank you for your cooperation and support in this effort!
