Caller ID Spoofing
District Health Department No. 2 has recently received several complaints from area residents indicating that possible scammers are making phone calls in the area using the health department’s phone number. In some cases, the callers pretend to be calling from Medicare or a private physician office. District Health Department No. 2 stresses that these calls are not coming from the health department.
The callers are using a technique called “caller ID spoofing,” where they falsify information transmitted to the caller ID to hide their identity. In this case, the callers are using health department phone numbers. The health department’s number shows up on the caller ID, but in reality, it is really someone else on the line. Should anybody receive this type of call, simply hang up. Most importantly, never hand out personal information over the phone, such as account numbers, Social Security numbers or passwords.

Thank you for our patience as we work to resolve this issue.
