Police in Morgan City say a number of reports have come in referencing possible scam phone calls claiming to be medicaid. 

Officials report that the calls show a Thibodaux area code and may possibly originate from that area. During the conversation, the "representative" asks the victim for their social security number. 

The callers state that they are with Louisiana Medicaid. 

Police warn that residents should not give out any personal information to unknown sources. Instances of these scam calls for residents in the city should be reported to the Morgan City Police Department.
