Below are some tips from the Olathe Police Department:

Posted: Updated:
  • Protect your Social Security and Medicare accounts. Do not give out those numbers or a bank account number over the phone.

  • Ask for a call-back number if you think it is suspicious. Then research who the caller is representing.

  • If the call is for a legitimate purpose they will not mind you asking additional questions and doing some of your own follow up. Most government entities will encourage you to do so.

  • If you are still unsure, call your local police department and have them look into it for you.

  • The federal government has a specific page set up to help you identify scams that target Medicare recipients.  Click here for more information.
