Scam Alert

The Broken Bow Police Department (BBPD) has received reports of people receiving calls from 1-800- 633-4227 claiming to be from Medicare and asking for personal information. This number is the Medicare number but it is not Medicare representatives calling. A BBPD officer spoke with Medicare and they will not ask for SSN, DOB or any other personal information when contacting members.

This is a scam! Scammers are using an app or a computer program to make it appear that their call is legitimately coming from Medicare.

As a reminder, you should never give out any personal information over the phone. If you are asked for it, hang up and call us or call a trusted relative or friend and ask their opinion.
