Scam Description

Neighbor received unsolicited durable medical equipment (braces for back and knee) by mail, addressed by name and full address. Did not request this equipment and have no need for it. Checked with family and determined this was likely an insurance scam because documentation in shipping package instructed victim to complete the enclosed paperwork with insurance information and return it to the company. Omnimed Supplies Corp would file with the health insurance for payment. Also there was no pre-paid return shipping label, which would normally be in such a package. Also checked online and found company has no website and was only established as a Florida Domestic Profit Corporation in December 2021. Suspect company got personal information from a data breach at former employer a few years ago. The free credit monitoring service given as a result of the breach has already expired. Stay away from this company, do not answer calls and do not complete or return documentation or equipment at your own expense. Dispose of equipment and paperwork as you see fit.
