LIMA - Consumers in west central Ohio have been reporting they have received fraudulent telephone calls claiming they are receiving a medical alert device free of charge.

The callers then ask for sensitive financial and personal information in order. If you agree, you’re billed monthly.

There have been reports nationwide about this scam. The calls originate from at least four different states.

They do provide a telephone number but, in most cases, when you try to call the number there is no response or you receive a message saying the number has been discontinued. It appears they are using temporary cell phones to make the calls because several different numbers have been provided.
