Medicare Patients with Diabetes - Beware of this Scam
Although the precise method may vary, the scheme generally involves someone pretending to be from the Government, a diabetes association, or even Medicare, calling you to offer "free" diabetic supplies, such as glucose meters, diabetic test strips, or lancets. The caller may also offer other supplies such as heating pads, lift seats, foot orthotics, or joint braces, in exchange for your' Medicare or financial information, or ask you to confirm this type of personal information. Additionally, you may receive items in the mail that you did not order.
