SCAM ALERT: MyAgedCare

CPSA members have alerted us to a phone scam in which the caller identifies themselves as a “specialist” with MyAgedCare.

MyAgedCare (1800 200 422) is the customer interface and entry point for aged care in Australia.

The “specialist” offers special deals on medication. Payment is by credit or debit card.

The members who alerted us to this scam did not fall for it, but be warned.

MyAgedCare does not sell anything. Not equipment, not medication.

Anybody who pays up will lose their money.

It is also likely that the caller will use credit card details to steal money from credit and debit card accounts.
