WORTHINGTON – Seniors in the area have been the target of yet another scam attempt, this one similar to one that was reported several weeks ago involving medical alert company. In the first scam, a phone call told seniors a medical alert service had been purchased for them, but they needed to set up details. It asked for personal banking information.
The new twist on the scam tells callers they qualify under a new program, the National Senior Assistance Program, to receive $3,000 in free grocery certificates. In addition, the client is offered a free medical alert bracelet or necklace.
