Always have to be on guard against identity thieves
Thursday, August 9, 2018
The caller told me about my arthritic back and said that Medicare would send a device that would help me. She said that it would cost me zero but she needed to confirm — get — my Medicare card number. She had the first letter and the last digit but needed the numbers in between. I almost gave them to her, but some good spirit "spoke" to me. I almost gave her my Social Security number.
I hope this note will help one or two who are as foolish and openhearted as I am. Unfortunately, we have to be constantly on guard.
