Scams

Information gathered in the hack of Anthem is being used to scam people.
 
Customers of Anthem Health Insurance and their services, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, have started receiving phishing emails and scam phone calls.
 
Be aware that Anthem is NOT calling people about the data theft and they are not asking people to supply their credit card or social security numbers over the phone. This is being done by scammers who try to entice consumers to share their personal information.
 
E-mail scams designed to capture personal information are often referred to as "phishing" and these e-mails seem to come from a real company or person. The current phishing scam emails are designed to look like they are from Anthem and includes a "click here" link for credit monitoring. These emails are NOT from Anthem.
 
Clicking on the links in the email can download malware onto your computer or to a web site designed to resemble Anthem's web site and asks for your personal information such as social security numbers, date of birth, etc.
 
Anthem has announced that it will be in contact with it's customers by regular mail delivered by the United States Postal Service.
 
Tips about phising e-mails:
Do not click on any links in the e-mail.
If you mistakenly click on a link Do Not provide any information on the web site.
Do not open any e-mail attachments that come with the fraudulent e-mail.
Do not reply, answer, or reach out to the sender in any way.
