The caller offers “free” diabetic supplies, such as glucose meters, test strips or lancets.  The caller may also offer heating pads, lift seats, foot care products or joint braces, according to the published report.

The caller then asks for your Medicare number, along with personal and financial information in order to receive the free supplies, according to the report.

Don’t fall for it.  It is a scam.
