GORDONVILLE, Tex. - One Texoma woman says she was the target of a phone scam and wants to warn other people before they become victims.
Sylvia Stevens says she got a phone call from a woman claiming she needed to send Stevens another Medicare card, but when the caller asked for Stevens bank information, she realized it was a scam.
In order to get off the phone, she told the caller that her son handled everything for her, and that she didn't have the information.
The woman then said, "I do need your ID number with Medicare.”
Stevens replied, “'No, I'm not giving you anymore information'" and as soon as I said that, the line went dead."
Law enforcement advises you never give out your personal information over the phone.
