Attorney General Mike DeWine is warning Ohioans of a medical alert scam.
DeWine said more than 200 people have reported getting unsolicited calls. Some of the callers said they heard a pre-corded message that they are eligible for a free medical alert system or that someone bought the alert device for them.
Some recordings tell consumers to press a button to schedule a delivery. DeWine urges people not to respond.
