According to Charlotte Baxter, an Administrator at Carriage House Manor Health and Rehab in Sulphur Springs, a local citizen reported that over the weekend, she received two phone calls from a solicitor claiming to represent Carriage House Manor in the sale of “first alert” pendants or necklaces. The citizen said her mobile phone flashed Carriage House Manor as caller ID. She conversed with the person who phoned her and who was offering the alert necklace in this area. Afterward, the citizen called Carriage House Manor and was told that they are not involved in the sale of this product by phone, and that if other citizens get these calls, that Carriage House is not behind the calls. According to Charlotte, “we provide nursing home and rehabilitation services. We are busy taking care of your loved ones, and do not participate in sales of products by phone.” Local citizens who may receive phone calls claiming to be sponsored by local businesses have the option of checking with that business to make certain they endorse such calls.
