Police warn against Medicaid scammer

Kent Police are warning senior citizens to be aware of a man who recently phoned a 67-year-old Kent woman to offer her a free Medicaid card in exchange for personal information.

The Kent woman told police the man called April 4 and introduced himself as Robert Jackson calling from Medicaid in Washington, D.C., according to a Kent Police media release. The man told her she would get a free Medicaid if she updated her records.

The man then asked the woman for her date of birth, social security number and bank account information. The woman did not provide the man with any information.

Kent Police recommend to residents to protect themselves from identity theft or fraud to not give out any personal information if you did not make the phone call or you do not know who is calling. Simply hang up the phone.
