Senior Scam Using AAAWM Name for PERS Service

8/4/2015 3:30pm

We have recently been informed that a company is calling older adults and claiming that Area Agency on Aging is paying in full for Personal Emergency Response devices (commonly called “call-buttons”). The automated call encourages people to “press 1 to verify their address.” 

AAAWM encourages anyone who receives the call to hang up and to NOT give the caller any information.

We have contacted all of the companies we currently use to provide Personal Emergency Response Services (PERS) and they have stated they are NOT behind these calls.

If you, or someone you know is in need of a PERS, please contact us and we can provide you with the name of the agencies we have funding relationship with. 

Again, we encourage people to NOT provide any personal information and to hang up the phone.
