Police send warning about phone scams concerning pain meds

CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) – Police on the West Shore are sending a warning about phone scams in which callers claim to be with health insurance companies.

The Lower Allen Township Police Department says some Capital BlueCross customers have received automated calls that claim to be on behalf of Capital BlueCross or the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association.

The calls request that customers contact their BlueCross provider to receive a new medication for chronic pain. Callers have also been asked to enter a number on their phone’s keypad to receive a prescription for a new pain medication in cream or gel form.

These calls are not authorized by Capitol BlueCross or the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

Police urge everyone to disregard these calls and protect their personal information.
