Another scam and this time the attempt to dupe the elderly is focused on doctor bills. Sheriff Lewis Tatum told KSST News Tuesday afternoon that scam calls in which to caller poses as a representative of a collection agency calling regarding unpaid doctor bills are being made to county residents. Sheriff Tatum says that if you are unaware of owning a medical bill, hand up and block the number.
He advises that if you have a question regarding any money owed to a doctor; call your doctor’s office regarding any bill. He stated that if you do not recognized the number calling you, do not answer the call. Noting that people know who and what they owe, this type of call should be ignored.
