Similar to other recent calls for free Medical Alert alarms, but this robo call has a new twist. Opens with an offer for free $3,000 in grocery certificates before getting to the point about a "free" medic alarm bracelet or necklace. Of course they ignore the Federal Do Not Call list, which certainly tells you something about their business practices, doesn't it?

SCAM targeting SENIORS! Beware! They try to claim they are the "Senior Assistant Program." The FTC and FCC are investigating them. DO NOT talk to them or press "1" etc. as instructed unless you are an investigator. Luckily the scammers are so dumb that they verbally abused and hung up on someone who identified themselves as a government investigator.
