Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama is reminding their customers to be aware of a current telephone spoofing scam targeting individuals throughout the country.
Calls are being made from different phone numbers nationwide, including some from Canada, the press release states. The perpetrator may use various tactics to obtain or verify an individual’s personal information.
Company officials state that Blue Cross does not make outgoing calls to verify or update members’ personal information.
“We encourage the public to remain vigilant, protect their personal information, and guard against providing personal information during calls that claim to be from Blue Cross,” the press release states.
