I didn't answer as I know Medicare does not call you. They would send a letter first and ask you to call them. So I knew this was a scam.

I answered because the caller Id said it was Medicare. Woman claimed she was calling about my back pain and was going to send me a free brace. I told her I didn't have back pain. She started asking me my height, weight, and doctor's names. I told her someone would call her back. She hung up. Could barely understand her due to broken English.

My caller ID stated that it was Medicare calling. When I questioned the caller she said that she was calling about my lower back pain. I asked again why Medicare showed on my called ID, she ignored my question and continued to state that I have lower back pain. I asked her how she would have any information on my health. She then disconnected the call. It was an obvious scam. Don't talk to these people.

The call came in at 5:26PM, June 5, 2018 from 442-243-5480 and said in big letters
MEDICARE. I did not answer, and phone rang 4 times, just like most robocalls. MEDICARE never calls, but up to you to call them if you want to talk about a claim or other questions.

Caller ID showed MEDICARE, thought it odd since it was after 6pm. The person didn't speak English well and was unable to pronounce the name of the party they were looking for after multiple attempts. They finally went with calling my mom Joe, I advised no one here by these names, what's this in regards to? The female hung up.

Began getting calls from "Medicare" again. They apparently now have new area codes and new phone numbers to call from and annoy everyone. will file complaints with FCC and FTC.

Tried to discuss health issues I never had or complained about. Detected a slight accent in her voice and she refused to offer any info as to how she received any information regarding my health. Difficult to get a word in edgewise. I said goodbye and hung up.

THis number identified as Medicare keeps calling. Usually leaves a message but not today. Calling about back brace??? Sat. message did includ "press 2" if you don't want to take advantage of Medicare's offer. With Trump & GOP in Washington the only thing happening to Medicare is cuts in patient care not help .
Scam calls have increased since GOP got in control both in Congress & the White House.
