Spectrum Health hospitals in Big Rapids, Reed City are warning area residents to be aware that people have received spoofing / scam phone calls from parties who claim to be representatives of Spectrum Health.
Hospital officials say these bogus calls are seeking credit card information and other personal details.
Officials ask that if you are not 100% sure of the legitimacy of providing personal or financial information over the phone to any Spectrum Health entity, that you ask the person for a call-back number and first contact customer service at 1.844.879.6180.
The persons making these recent phone calls are in no way associated with Spectrum Health and are seeking personal financial information for unlawful reasons and their own personal gain. Many of these callers are very sophisticated and are using Spectrum Health or one of its hospitals as the caller ID, making it look like a legitimate phone call.
If you receive one of these scam calls, please report it to your local police department.
