SCAM ALERT! Unfortunately, we’ve had reports that someone is spoofing local phone numbers, including South Peninsula Hospital and Homer Medical Clinic numbers, trying to get personal information. “Spoofing” is when scammers trick your phone’s caller ID into showing false information. Be cautious of any unexpected phone calls that appear to come from the hospital, and remember, our HR department will never call to ask for your social security or insurance numbers.

If you’re unsure, play it safe. Hang up and call back to see if the phone number was being spoofed. And don’t give out your personal information (birthday, SSN, insurance numbers) if someone calls and asks. This is happening all over the state, so please protect your personal information and spread the word to keep our community safe.
