MGH Warning of Phone Scam
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Officials with Marquette General Hospital are warning area residents about a reported telephone scam that involves callers misidentifying themselves as being affiliated with the hospital.
Individuals who have reported the calls to MGH say a call is made using a recording that instructs the listener to call Marquette General Hospital’s Radiology Department at an “800” number.
When the call recipient dials the phone number, they are then told they are entitled to local store vouchers or a cruise to the Bahamas, but must supply credit card information to pay processing fees.
Marquette General Hospital officials want the public to be aware that it is not soliciting credit card information over the telephone.
