The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is aware of an instance in which a scammer is spoofing the phone number to an MDHHS office to try to sell people health insurance coverage. There was a report of a call that was spoofing the phone number of the MDHHS Gratiot/7 Mile Road office in Wayne County.
To seem more official, scammers often use a process known as "spoofing" - when a call appears to be coming from a legitimate government phone number. The caller may also sound professional and be very persuasive.
Anyone who receives a phone call they suspect to be a scam should hang up the phone. No one should give out personal information to an unsolicited caller. Those who wish to make a report about potential scams, price-gouging and any other violation of the Michigan Consumer Protection Act can do so with the Attorney General's Consumer Protection team by filing a complaint online or by calling 877-765-8388.
