Scam Description

+19283829106 This number called me on a business line so I called back. I got an automated message for Medicare and how they could help me. When I followed the prompts it led me to a nice sounding male who claimed they were working for medicare and asked if I had Medicare already. I let them know I did not and asked how they made calls and obtained the numbers they were calling. He claimed they do not make outbound calls so I let him know I had a missed call from them and he just denied it and let me know they are with Medicare. It sounded very convincing. So I hung up with the gentleman. I wanted to make sure so I called back again and this time got all circuits busy.
I used a different number to call it again and got the automated message again. After the prompts this time got a nice woman who sounded very professional.
I hung up and tried calling again and got the all circuits busy again.
Unfortunately i get these calls a lot from owning a business. This is definitely a scam targeting older people. I hope this helps and you look up the number before giving any personal information.
