Bowling Green, OH (April 14, 2014) – Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) urges the public, older adults, and families and friends of older adults to be on the lookout for a scam involving someone using the Wood County Committee on Aging name fraudulently.
WCCOA was informed of the scam by a WCCOA client living outside of Hoytville, Ohio. The client informed us that a woman called him on Saturday, April 12, 2014 and began asking him personal questions and then moved towards insurance questions. The woman told him she was representing the Wood County Committee on Aging.
The client did the right thing and refused to answer any more questions and followed up with the Wood County Committee on Aging by calling us. The woman appeared to be an insurance agent misrepresenting herself.
WCCOA does not make unprompted calls such as this regarding medical or long term care insurance. If you or someone you know receives a call like this, please do not give out any information and contact the Wood County Committee on Aging at (419) 353-5661.
Please inform any older adults you may know of this scam and be sure to report it to us.
