Fraud Alert - Phone Solicitations
It has come to our attention that there is a fraudulent agent using automated phone calling and the Franciscan name without authorization or permission. The scam targets individuals by soliciting call backs under the auspices of our Franciscan name and brand. The phone numbers being utilized for callbacks may or may not be Franciscan phone numbers. Be warned that when an individual calls back the perpetrators use various tactics like vacations, promotions for credit cards, etc. to gain personal and credit card information. We are actively investigating this matter and intend to have this illegal scam and infringement stopped.
It is important to know, Franciscan Health does not and will not solicit individuals with vacations or credit card promotions. The best protection against these types of telephone scams is to not call back.
We encourage the public to remain vigilant, protect their personal information, and guard against providing personal information during calls where perpetrators purport to be from Franciscan Health.
We are posting this notice to better inform the public and our employees to disregard these calls and that they have no connection to the Franciscan Alliance and/or Franciscan Health system. If you believe you may have been a victim of the telephone spoofing scam report your experience to the FTC online or by calling (888) 382-1222.
Thank you for your attention.
