The Better Business Bureau is warning elderly Acadiana residents of scam calls claiming to be from a local hospital.
According to the BBB, the scammers are claiming to be from Opelousas General Hospital asking residents for personal information, including their Social Security number, credit card number and PIN, and prescription in formation.
The Opelousas General Health System says it is aware of the scam. The system and the BBB advise residents to hang up when they receive a call from someone asking for personal information.
