Attorney General, MDHHS Warn of Phone Scammers Posing as Health Officials
Attorney General Dana Nessel and MDHHS Director Robert Gordon are warning Michiganders about phone scammers posing as public health officials.
According to Nessel, several health departments have received reports about calls from people seeking personal information that could be used to steal someone’s identity.
The callers claim to be from a local health department or Medicare and appear to be calling from health department phone numbers.
Anyone who receives one of those calls should hang up immediately, Nessel says, and no one should give out personal information.
Local public health and Medicaid officials will not call you and request account information, Social Security numbers, or passwords over the phone.
Those who wish to make a report about these calls can do so by contacting the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division.
