Subject: Scam Alert
I wanted to let you all know that this morning one of our home-bound clients received a call claiming they were from “meals on wheels” and began requesting personal information. The caller knew the individual’s name, her son’s name, and the name of the bank she dealt with. The caller asked several personal questions about home ownership, bank balances, etc. Needless to say, this was NOT a representative of the meals on wheels program here in Berks County.
We’ve sent out notifications to our clients, and will also be releasing a press release about this scam. I did want to share this with you as well as I know many of you share scam notifications within your networks. Never hurts to spread the word quickly.
