Scammers seek credit card information to schedule COVID vaccine shots

New IdentityTheft Scam

Froedtert Health is warning that some patients have received fraudulent calls in which the callers say they are from the health system and ask for credit card information to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network also would not ask for credit card information over the phone for a vaccination appointment, Froedtert Health said in a news release.

The fraudulent calls are being reported from the phone number 1-800-805-5880 and the caller ID says the call is from “Froedtert Systems.”

People who receive calls should not respond and should hang up. They also can note the telephone number and contact their local law enforcement agency to report the incident.

People who have become victims of identity theft can visit the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection website.
