Hello everyone,

Thank you for helping us to distribute scam and fraud information to homebound seniors in PA!  Please find the Senior Medicare Patrol’s (SMP) latest Scam Bulletin attached for distribution to anyone who is elderly and may fall victim to this scam. We are getting this notice out to all of our home delivered meal recipients.  SMP usually keeps ScamWires focused on health care fraud but this scam is nationwide, spreading quickly, and could have serious consequences for victims.

Get the Scam Bulletin HERE. It is provided by the Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly (CARIE).

For more information on the scam see this release by the Better Business Bureau http://www.bbb.org/us/article/president-obama-is-not-offering-to-pay-your-utility-bills-34928
