The Better Business Bureau warns of a new scam affecting consumers of any age.
Look out for calls about a new medical alarm system. Scammers will tell you the alarm systems have already been ordered but need a monthly fee from you. This is a nationwide scam, even though you may see a local number on your caller ID.
Contact the Better Business Bureau if you have questions about this or any other consumer problem. The local number is (256) 850-0719 or toll-free at 1 (866) 94-BBB19.
