Scam warning about new Medicare cards The Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) Program would like to warn Medicare beneficiaries and caregivers about recent complaints regard- ing suspicious telemarketing to beneficiaries in many regions of Virginia. Scam artists are pretending to be from Medicare and asking beneficiaries for their bank information in order to receive their new Medicare card and/or their Medicare benefits. Medicare beneficiaries need to be aware of callers claiming to be from Medicare asking for Medicare information and bank- ing information in order to receive their "new" Medicare card and Medicare benefits. These calls are a scam. Medicare NEVER does make calls offering supplies or services, nor do they call and request Medicare num- bers. The number one rule is NOT to provide any personal informa- tion such as your Medicare number, bank account or credit card informat on over the phone. If you think you have been a target of a scare, report it to the Virginia SMP program at 1-800- 938-8885 or visit The SMP Program is funded by the Administration on Aging, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging has administered the SMP grant in partnership with 21 local Area Agencies on Aging for 14 years. Deadline for 1 classifieds is Tuesday noon!
