The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau is warning senior citizens about a scam. The caller claims to be a from a company that sells medical alert systems, and they want to either install an alarm or say that they will be sending a device. The company says it markets a bracelet with a button that, when pushed, “sends an immediate alert to the local police station or ambulance.” The BBB says there is no information that this company is legitimate. They advise you to never give out personal or financial information to an unknown caller.
