Posted: Updated:

HORSEHEADS, NY (WENY) -- Officials with Guthrie want you to be on the lookout for an old scam making a strong comeback

The medical group tells WENY News scammers are using fake caller ID technology to make fraudulent phone calls.

The caller identifies themselves as a staff member of a provider's office asking for personal information, or to report an issue with a credit card.

Guthrie warns not to give any information over the phone.

The group says it doesn't initiate phone calls requesting this kind of information.

Anyone who receives a call like this is being asked to contact local law enforcement
