Scam Alert: Medical Alert Imposters Are On The Prowl

Scam Alert Oregon DOJ

A recent notification (issued today) from the Oregon Attorney General got our attention.  It’s entitled “Hang Up On Medical Alert Imposters”.  Read the alert below:

Medical Alert Imposters

If you’re having trouble reading the notification above, it says; “The recordings sound like a real person claiming that either someone has purchased a Life Alert system for you, or that you qualify for a free Life Alert.  Others may say they are calling from a shipping department to confirm a free order to send you new Life Alert equipment.”  Anytime you hear from someone (particularly a recording of someone) unsolicited on the telephone, red flags should be going up… Life Alert has confirmed the calls are indeed fraudulent.
