Beware of scams, don't give information

info@islandpacket.comNovember 12, 2013 

I have just received a call from a female I did not know. She said that they were sending out new Medicare cards for seniors. After correctly stating my home address and telephone number, she said that for further verification, she needed my Social Security number. Everyone, be aware that this is a scam. Never give out your Social Security number to a caller like this.
