      Officials warn of free medical alert system scam

      DeWine said more than 200 people have reported getting unsolicited calls.

      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.
