Phone scams targeting COVID-19 vaccine appointments

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Multiple patients have contacted the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network about receiving fraudulent calls from scammers seeking financial information information to schedule a COID-19 vaccine appointment.

In a statement released by the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin on March 10, officials announced that "these calls are not from Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network and the health network would not ask for credit card information over the phone relating to a vaccine appointment."

Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin is asking the public to not respond and hang up if you receive any unsolicited call or message about financial information relating to scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
