State Officials Warning of Genetic Testing Scam

State Officials are warning Minnesotans about a genetic testing scam that’s making the rounds in some parts of the U.S.

 

Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Steve Kelley says people should be suspicious of anyone who offers free genetic testing and requests their Medicare information.

 

Kelley says, “After an individual have provided Medicare information along with a cheek swab or something like that, then the fraudsters use all of that information to submit fraudulent bills or to steal the person’s identity.”
