TULSA - There's a new warning for seniors involving a phone scam and Medicare cards.
The Oklahoma Bankers Association says someone is calling people, telling them new Medicare cards are being sent.
The caller is then asking for direct deposit information and may even threaten to withhold the new card until an account number is provided.
But the OBA says no new Medicare cards are being issued and bank account information should never be shared over the phone.
