Sheriff warns of scam circulating the county

Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Fields is warning the public of a scam that is circulating around the county.

“In recent reports, citizens are contacted and told they are speaking with a representative from Medicare,” said Fields in a Wednesday news release. “They state that a new Medicare card will be sent to your home with a new number on it and includes benefits that seem too good to be true (e.g., offering vision and dental with no co-pays). To get this new card and keep coverage active, you may be asked for your billing information. This is a SCAM!”

Should you get a call about your Medicare card, please hang up and call the Medicare number on your card. Fields said don’t give out your personal information.

“If you have any questions or concerns, you may call the Moore County Sheriff’s Office at 910-947-2931,” said Fields.
