Phone Scam Warning from Aging & Adult Services5/18/2022
Be on the alert for phone scammers!
Phone number spoofing is a tactic used by scammers. They “spoof” or duplicate an existing phone number that the person they are calling is likely to trust in order to gain access to private information. Unfortunately, there are no technical fixes to stop scammers from spoofing a phone number.
Please take note:
Aging & Adult Services is aware that there is a scammer who may be “spoofing” our telephone number in order to trick people into thinking we have called them.
Aging & Adult Services will not call you asking for personal information except in rare cases where your case manager is gathering information to determine your eligibility for services.
Do not share your private information over the phone with people you do not know; this includes people you do not know who claim to be from Aging & Adult Services.
If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from Aging & Adult Services and you are not sure if they are legitimate, hang up the phone. You can contact your Case Manager to determine if this was a legitimate call.
