A warning to senior citizens, don't be fooled by a new scam!

The Office of Financial and Insurance Services Commissioner says con artists are posing as Medicare representatives.

The thieves call Medicare beneficiaries and offer to enroll them in a Medicare Part D plan.

They ask for personal information and bank numbers.

In some cases, the scammers already have the victim's Social Security number or other information.

They also require an initial payment of about $300.

Seniors, remember, if someone calls you asking for money or personal information- hang up!

You can always call a company back to make sure it is legitimate.

Also, if door-to-door salespeople come to your home, do not let them in.
