Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) said it is not associated with recent phone calls that involve a caller who speaks of a prize to be won if one dials a different number and agrees to pay a small fee.
CTMC advises those who receive such calls to refrain from offering financial information or personal data. The hospital counsels residents not to dial the number offered by the caller, who claims to be with CTMC.
“Given the economic challenges so many are facing today, we’d hate to have anyone think that they are helping to support our healthcare ministry when, in fact, they are being misled and taken advantage of,” said CTMC Administrative Director of Public Relations and Marketing Clay DeStefano.
