DECATUR, Ill. (WICS/WRSP) — Decatur Memorial Hospital is warning the public of an active phone scam.
DMH posted on their Facebook page, confirming patients or caregivers have received calls from what looked to be the DMH caller ID.
Callers have reportedly asked for bank account and personal information.
Although the calls appear to be from DMH, it is actually a scammer who is "spoofing" a DMH number.
Anyone who receives this scam call is urged to hang up. If you are concerned the call may be legitimate, call DMH back using the main switchboard number (217-876-8121) and ask an operator to be connected to a specific department.
DMH encourages everyone not to call the number provided during the original call, as well as to report the potential scam call to their local police department.
