OGB warns members of phone call scams

April 11, 2012

OGB and our partners do not ask for members’ financial information

The Office of Group Benefits has learned that some OGB members have received fraudulent phone calls from someone stating they are a Medco representative and asking for the member’s banking information.

These calls are a scam to find out personal and financial information. Companies contracted by OGB do not ask for banking information from our members.

If a member encounters this situation, here are the steps you should take.

  • Never give out the information requested.
  • Check your caller ID to see if the call location can be identified. (For instance, if it were Medco calling, the caller ID should say “Medco” or “Medco Pharmacy.”)
  • Report any suspicious phone calls to OGB.
