GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – Senior citizens on Medicare are being targeted for their genetic and personal information.
The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies says genetic testing scams that ask for finger prints, are a fairly new problem affecting senior citizens in the centennial state.
Solstice Senior Living is a local senior living facility that meets with its residents regularly on how to keep their information safe.
If you think you may have provided personal information that was part of a scam contact the Colorado Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) at 1-800-503-5190. To learn more about the Colorado SMP, visit the Senior Medicare and Medicare Fraud website.
