Robocallers are taking advantage of elderly people who may not be aware of how to protect themselves from scams, by offering fake Medicare plans. These calls are not only costing unsuspecting individuals large amounts of money, but they are also violating rules put in place by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Robocallers are using fear tactics to convince elderly people to buy fake Medicare plans. They will tell the individuals that they are receiving a special offer and that if they do not take advantage of it right away, they might miss out on it. They might even pretend to be from a legitimate company.

Unfortunately, many elderly people will fall for these scam calls because they are not aware of the dangers of giving out personal information or credit card details over the phone. Even if the conversation does not involve money, the elderly person might still be vulnerable to identity theft.

The FTC has a few rules for robocallers, as well as other telemarketers. They must display their phone number and the name of the company they are working for. They must also tell you who they are calling on behalf of, and stop calling when you ask them to.

If you or someone you know has fallen victim to a robocall scam, it is important to report it to the FTC. You can also register your phone number with the National Do Not Call Registry. This will help to reduce the number of unwanted calls you receive.

It is important to be aware of the dangers of robocalls and to take precautions to avoid falling victim to one of their scams. There are a number of resources available to help educate and protect elderly people, such as the FTC and the National Do Not Call Registry. With these, you can help to ensure that elderly people are better protected from robocalls. As an agent, taking these measures becomes even more crucial.
