Medical discount scam circulating around ND

BISMARCK — Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says a scam targeting senior citizens is circulating around North Dakota.

Stenehjem says the Consumer Protection Division has received several reports from senior citizens who received telephone calls on supposed updates to their medical discount plan cards. The scam artist then asks for personal and financial information.

Stenehjem says people should never give out personal or financial information over the telephone in response to unsolicited calls.
