Feds Set Up Toll Free Number To Report Scammers

The federal government begins mailing $250 tax-rebate checks today to seniors in Medicare prescription drug program. But feds are warning seniors that scam artists already are targeting the payments. Federal officials are getting reports of scam artists contacting seniors asking for  personal information to get the checks — including Medicare, Social Security or bank account numbers. Anyone who has received a scam call should call the toll free number 800- 633-4227.
