Scam Description

I had called Medicare a few days ago regarding an issue and was told someone would call back. The person returned my call, but I wasn’t home. Again, I was told that someone would call back on my home number. Today, I received a call on my mobile phone and the person stated he was calling about Medicare insurance. He asked for my Medicare number; date of birth; and address. Without thinking, I render the information. He began asking info about medical issues for myself and family member medical history. Further, he stated the red, white, blue Medicare card.was obsolete and will be replaced with a new Medicare card which I’ll be receiving in the mail within 1 week. At this point, I realized this was a fraudulent call because my previous calls to Medicare involved premium payments and nothing to do with my medical health. I was so anxious to talk with Medicare regarding my Premium that I let my guard down. I reported this phone scam to Medicare and they are going to investigate this scam.
