Phone Scam Reported

A St. Marie man has reported a new phone scam working in this area.

This one is a medical card scam in which a caller with a foreign accent says you can get free discounts. He has your address and phone number.

The scammer says, “All we need is your bank number so we can confirm you’re a real person.”

Remember, never give out financial information to a stranger who calls you. Real companies don’t ask for this information on the phone.
