Scammers Target Elderly with Confusion Over 'Obamacare'

With the confusion over changes in health care and with open enrollment for those on Medicare - scammers are preying on seniors, trying to get their Medicare and bank account numbers.

Nancy Stone, Indiana Senior Medicare Patrol program director, says current Medicare beneficiaries should not be getting calls about signing up for health-care plans.

The Federal Trade Commission says the scammers claim to be from the government and insist on getting information so new national medical cards can be issued.

Stone says don't fall for it.

She says no one should be calling unsolicited about health-care changes.
