'Medicare' scam doesn't trip up local woman

Email

Sharon Fitzgerald was not an easy target this week when she got the telephone call from the "federal government."

The caller wanted information on the Medicare patient in the home. No number registered on her Caller ID.

Why, Fitzgerald asked.

"Somebody was calling from the federal government wanting Medicare information from me," Fitzgerald said. "I know the federal government doesn't do that, doesn't make phone calls."
