CRMC Alerts Community of Phone Scam

December 20, 2013

“It has come to our attention that people in the community are receiving automated phone calls from an 866-218-7985 number identifying itself as Coffee Regional Medical Center and asking for personal information”,  reports Shelly McLean, Director of Public Relations at Coffee Regional.  “Somehow the callers are able to address the residents by name and are stating they are calling with important healthcare information.  We want to make it clear that these calls are NOT from us!  This is a scam!  For your protection, do not give them any information and hang up!  NEVER divulge personal information (birth date, social security number, etc.) over the phone.  If you should ever receive a legitimate automated call from CRMC, such as an appointment reminder, it will NEVER request personal information.”
