Following received from the Arizona Department of Elder Services via the Vulnerable Adult Crimes Division, Phoenix (AZ) Police Department


Information was received that there is a potential Medicare Refund Scam.  There have been at least three calls in Denver and more in Utah from a Mr. Raymond Garcia stating he is from Social Security Administration.  He told the beneficiaries they were eligible for a Medicare refund and was very insistent on needing the name of their bank and/or routing number and their account numbers so he could make the deposit.  He furnished a telephone number of 1-888-553-9319 (which is a disconnected number).

If you are a Medicare or Social Security beneficiary:
 

  • No one from Social Security or Medicare will call a beneficiary and ask for this kind of personal information.
  • If you get a call like this, please report it immediately. You can call a toll-free reporting number.
