I want to make you aware of this phone scam because so many parents use the Ottawa County Health Dept for vaccination updates, hearing and vision screenings and much more. Please be aware of this scam so that you can protect your confidential information.
Scammers are using the Ottawa County Department of Public Health’s (OCDPH) phone numbers to make calls. The caller claims to be with OCDPH or from Medicare/Medicaid. In both instances, the caller is asking for personal and confidential information. OCDPH’s phone number shows up on the caller ID, but the call is actually from a scammer, not OCDPH. If you receive a call and the person asks for confidential information, hang up!
NEVER give out confidential information, such as account numbers, social security numbers, mother’s maiden name or passwords to an unsolicited caller!
