Subject: Medicare scam, I think



East central Iowa

I received a call from a person with an accent this morning before 7:00 AM.   He wanted to send me something that would either alleviate or stop my back pain.  He assured me that there was no shipping charge, no cost of any kind to me.  He knew my address, name, and complaint of back pain.

He was not affiliated with my doctors pain clinic.

He heavily promoted the fact that I had Medicare A and B,  or whatever.  He repeated how I had already paid for this by having Medicare and being over 65.

I believe this scam is one that scams Medicare.  They get the okay from a person and send the device, then bill Medicare.  Probably one of those TENS devices you buy at Walmart or Amazon for less than $50 but they can bill Medicare a lot more.  Medicare pays them.
