Fraud Alert:
HHS OIG Hotline Telephone Number Used in Scam

A telephone scam in which crooks alter caller ID to make it seem as if the call is coming from the HHS OIG Hotline 1-800-HHS-TIPS (1-800-447-8477) to get beneficiaries and members of the public to verify or share personal info which is used to victimize them via financial and other crimes – draining their bank accounts. OIG wants the public to know that HHS OIG will not use the HHS OIG Hotline telephone number to make outgoing calls and individuals should not answer calls from 1-800-HHS-TIPS (1-800-447-8477).

Southeastern Virginia’s Senior Advocate is a magazine devoted to issues of importance to Virginia Seniors.  To read the online version click on the picture at left.

Senior Advocate was established in Virginia in 2002 by Stephanie Smith. Smith’s experience in caring for her grandmother after she developed Alzheimer’s disease sparked her interest in issues involving the needs of older adults. Her hands-on experience providing care management for seniors and their families made her aware that these families were often ill-informed about resources available to help them.
