Munson Healthcare Warns Residents of Local Phone Scam
Munson Healthcare is warning residents in Northwest Michigan of a phone scam using their name.
According to Munson, people are receiving calls with sales pitches that include both prerecorded messages and live callers.
The calls reportedly show Munson Healthcare phone numbers on caller ID.
Munson says the calls typically try to sell credit cards, insurance, trips, or try to trick people into turning over personal information.
The company says they are not the ones making these calls, but scammers can spoof their names or numbers, making them nearly impossible to trace.
Anyone receiving these types of calls should never provide any personal information, and can contact the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov.
