“The man said I needed to sign up for a second Medicare card,” said the woman. “When I wouldn’t give my personal information, he said he was going to cancel my current Medicare card and I wouldn’t have one at all if I didn’t cooperate with him. He got very mad.”
After the call, the woman contacted Medicare herself and was told there wasn’t any second card that needed to be obtained.
