Pulaski Memorial Hospital has received word about a possible scam that may affect their “emergency response system” users. Pulaski Memorial Hospital Home Health & Hospice provide this service, and they have been contacted by the company with a warning.
A scam involving a fake company is attempting to mimic Philips Lifeline and is making the rounds that affects senior citizens in our community.
A company referring to itself as Senior Alertline has been calling large numbers of seniors using an automated dialing technology. The alleged company also created a website that essentially copied a Philips Lifeline website with phone numbers that do not go to Philips Lifeline.
This enterprise is being pursued by the state attorney general in the mid-west and hundreds of scams have already been reported. This company is looking to get your credit card information. If you have given out your credit card information, contact that financial institution and have that card stopped promptly.
If you or someone you know uses Pulaski Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Response System, please inform the user of this scam.
