Hang up on BadgerCare Plus phone scam
Consumers should be on the lookout for calls from scammers that request your bank account information while claiming to represent the state of Wisconsin and the BadgerCare Plus health care program.
BadgerCare Plus members in the Fox Valley were recently told they were eligible for a $200 stipend from the state and were asked for their bank account information in order to make the deposit. When the call recipients refused to turn over that information, the calls disconnected.
