Scam alert: RMCHCS patients receiving ‘false calls’

E-mail Print PDF

Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services has just learned of a scam that targets RMCHCS patients with false telephone calls.

Caller ID shows that the phone call is from RMCHCS, when in fact, scammers are hoping to perpetrate a scam on the recipient. Somehow hackers are now able to plug in any phone number and contact people under false pretenses.

These incidents are occurring across the country and often show familiar or important sources such as hospitals or police departments when they are actually coming from un-reputable marketers wanting to sell something or extract personal information.

RMCHCS is very sorry that our community has been hit by these scams.

Federal Communication officials as well as our telephone provider have been notified and are working to eliminate this new threat to your security.

Please report these incidents and do not give out any personal information. When in doubt, you should call RMCHCS directly to ascertain the validity of phone calls you might receive.
