OSF warns of phone scam

OSF Healthcare is trying to make the public aware of potential phone scam activity that’s been going on in the area. The company says they’ve become aware of patients or caregivers receiving calls from what appears to be an OSF Healthcare called ID. The scammers then have been asking about COVID-19 and other personal information. OSF says if you do receive a call like this, particularly if you haven’t had any recent interaction with OSF, hang up. If there’s a worry that the call might be legitimate, call the location back using the main switchboard number for that facility. It’s also a good idea to contact your local police department if believe you have received a scam call.
