Health records are the new credit cards

Forget credit card numbers. The hot new data for the modern bad guy is the electronic health record, which is not only worth more on the black market, but is easier to get.

This health care insurance scam happened to me the last time I spent some time in the hospital.

Once home I started getting lots of snail mail and phone calls to pay things my insurance all ready paid. The mail do look real and the phone callers did sound official. Contacting my insurance company I found out they were frauds. Of course I didn't pay them.

Sounds like the problem is solved. No No No.

These fraud billing companies also have a fraud company they use as a collection agency.
They will hound you for years (I mean years) with snail mail and phone calls.
Do not Call list doesn't work or does blocking their phone number because they don't give a damn about the Do not Call list and they change the phone number constantly.

That is one reason I keep my phone unplugged. That will stop them.
Yes believe me it took years before this B/S stopped. I thought wrong.

I have been informed that one of the fraud companies has a class action law suite against them, which means nothing. They will disappear and pop up as another company in a short time.

My personal information had to come from a breach of security at the hospital, doctors or insurance company.

I was getting snail mail from these frauds at my home before I was out of the hospital. A friend was picking up my mail at my home while I was in the hospital.
This all happened before all the information was out about all the hacks we know about today.

The big problem is that the personal information that was stolen from me will be out in the world forever. Which means the fraudulent billing of just about anything can start up just about any time.

Unplugging the phone solved the call problem.
The mail problem was also easy to solve. Any mail that isn't normal like utilities bills, house payments ect. I don't open. I just destroy them. From the mail box to the trash.

So folks, if you ever get hit like I did the attack will never stop. Sorry for the bad news. It is and was a life changing experience for me.

Got in touch with law inforcement and was told the amount they were trying to steal from me was not enough to get on their to do list. They were looking for bigger fish to catch.
