MODESTO — A new wave of scam robocalls is spreading throughout the region.
The Better Business Bureau serving Northern California is warning people about automated calls offering free medical alert systems that prompt consumers to disclose credit card information.
Consumers reported receiving telephone calls with prerecorded messages that claim a relative or friend recommended them for a free product. They are prompted to press a number to accept the offer.
After accepting, another call is initiated to request personal information, including credit card numbers. The Better Business Bureau urges call recipients to simply end the call.
