New Telephone Scame Making The Rounds

June 14, 2017
Emmetsburg News

The Emmetsburg Police Department has been made aware of a new telephone scam in Emmetsburg and Palo Alto County. The scam information was shared by Palo Alto County Health Systems and Mercy Medical Center North Iowa in Mason City.

There have been reports that an Online Pharmacy calls people who are not their customers and asks for their insurance information. When the person declines to give the information, the company then calls the person's pharmacy or Doctor's office with a request to fill a prescription, in order to obtain the insurance information.

The Emmetsburg Police Department encourages everyone to be cautious about giving out any type of personal information to unfamiliar businesses over the phone.

If you have received such a call, contact your nearest Law Enforcement agency immediately. The Emmetsburg Police Department can be reached at 712-852-2424, the Palo Alto County Sheriff's Office can be reached at 712-852-3535.
