This call is unsettling, because it’s a scam against all of us.

This is a telemarketer who admits that they are calling “all Medicare patients”. In 2014, there were about 50 million people on medicare. So they’re calling 50 million people? How is this okay?

So they call the medicare patient, ask if they’re having back pain, and offer to send “the back brace”. I assume if the patient wants one, they get the medicare information (which is probably bad) and bill medicare for the back brace (which is definitely bad). This is a crime against everyone. Now, there might be some people who can benefit from getting a back brace, but I think we can all agree that this is a scam, right?

There’s one question that I cannot hear, but as I listen again I think she asks if he “has a wheelchair”. Anyway, this bot is perfect for this call because Whitey Whitebeard is such a befuddled old man. Fortunately, he manages to get under her skin a little bit, and he wastes over seven minutes of her time.

So here is one solution to all of the Medicare fraud going on! Send these scammers to a robot designed to waste their time. Are there any Medicare fraud investigators out there?

Thanks for listening!
