Bogus Medical Equipment Scam Reported

A spokesman for the Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Department  says a new telephone scam involving the bogus delivery of medical equipment has been widely reported.

Dick Blust says the scam begins with a recorded phone message telling the intended victim that their “medical adviser” has approved a “medical appliance” for the person which needs to be delivered. The intended victim is then asked to supply personal financial information so that the supposed medical device can be delivered and paid for.

Blust says the call is nothing more than an attempt to acquire bank account information, credit card numbers and other details that could be used to get money from the victim. Blust says no responsible medical professional will ever order equipment to be delivered to you without discussing it with you first. He advises anyone receiving such a call to simply hang up..
