877-759-5760 - Spoofing

Did you get a call from our number?  MWG Senior Services has been spoofed!

Spoofing is when someone imitates a phone number, so it looks like we are calling, when we did not.  Recently, someone spoofed our number pretending to be Medicare to obtain your personal information. Our direct line is 877-759-5760, which is the number they are calling from.  However, when we dial out, our local number starting with 601 will show up on your caller ID.  We have filed a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), but unfortunately, that’s all we can do.  We were told normally the scammers will use one number for a couple of days, then change to a different one.
