Main Health Department Phone Number Spoofed

Never give sensitive information to an unsolicited caller

The main Washtenaw County Health Department phone number (734-544-6700) has been falsified in a scam to contact random people for sensitive information. The Health Department has been made aware that the spoofed number is asking individuals for health insurance information. The Washtenaw County Health Department will never randomly call you asking for your health insurance information. If you get such a a call, hang up immediately and do not give out your personal information. 

A similar scam has also affected other health departments across the state. Information on caller ID spoofing by the Federal Communications Commission can be found at www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/spoofing-and-caller-id. Remember, never give personal information to an unsolicited caller.

To make a report about these, or any other suspected scam calls, you can make a complaint to the Michigan Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 877-765-8388 or online.
