Scam spoofs local hospital's phone number

MONTROSE, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- There's a new warning about a scam going around a local community.

The Montrose Daily Press reported the scammer is making calls from a spoofed Montrose Memorial Hospital phone number. The caller claims they need the person's credit card information in order to give them a refund from the hospital.

The hospital wants people to know they will never call and ask for a credit card to make a refund.

If you get a similar call, let police or the hospital know so they can keep tabs on how often the scam is happening.
