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.

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

Set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is about to finish a house arrest sentence after causing a big ruckus in the last...
