ID Theft Alert - Diabetes Test Kit Scam

From the BBB of Southern Colorado

The BBB has received several telephone calls from consumers living in the Pueblo area reporting that they have received solicitation calls from a company offering a FREE blood kit test for diabetes.

The Catch: the consumer must provide the caller with their social security number and insurance information. This is clearly an attempt at identify theft.

Unfortunately, none of the consumers were able to give the name of the company, but one did capture the phone number on their caller ID. It’s 919-342-2383 emanating from the Raleigh/Durham North Carolina area. When called, there is a recording stating that the number is no longer in service.

As always, the BBB cautions consumers to be very careful when asked for personal information. Do not provide it to anyone you do not know.
