Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has a scammer warning for the state (we understand Bay County reported this type of scam, too)

 

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is warning that scammers are spoofing phone numbers of at least one local public health department and calling residents to offer medication while asking for their Medicaid and Medicare numbers for billing purposes.   

Incoming calls to the local health department are then jamming up phonelines and delaying official business in responding to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).  

Reports so far have been focused on the Ionia County Health Department.

“Scammers will not hesitate to gain access to your private information, and false promises of medications will not be fulfilled,” Nessel said. “As a result of this scam, the number of calls to local public health departments are also hindering their ability to respond to the current COVID-19 pandemic.   Never provide any personal information over the phone unless you have first independently confirmed who you are talking to.”  

To seem more official, scammers often use a process known as “spoofing” – when a call appears to be coming from a legitimate government phone number.   The caller may also sound professional and be very persuasive.  

Anyone who receives a phone call they suspect to be a scam should hang up the phone. No one should give out personal information to an unsolicited caller.  

Those who wish to make a report about potential scams, price-gouging and any other violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act can do so with the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection team by filing a complaint online or by calling 877-765-8388.

A cool opportunity to enjoy baseball when there is no baseball…..

NEW YORK (AP) – Ken Burns has asked PBS to stream his “Baseball” documentary series, since Major League Baseball delayed the start of the season.

PBS added the series to its free PBS Video app and online at PBS.org.

Burns says in a video statement as many people hunker down out of concern for the coronavirus, “it’s important that we find things that bring us together and show us our common humanity.”
