Q: What steps should I take to avoid Medicare fraud?
A: Smooth-talking scam artists are taking advantage of Medicare enrollees. Remember: Medicare staffers will never ask you for personal information. They already have all the information from you that they need to serve you.
Be suspicious of anyone who visits your home or calls you, asking for your personal information. Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) to report suspicious phone calls.
