Last month, I received a call from an Omaha, NE #402-220-1100 and answered it. It was a REAL PERSON (and not the usual robocall) stating they were calling from Walgreens with a reminder to pick up an Rx. Then, they asked me my date of birth!! I hung up on them and went to my pharmacy in Titusville, FL to report it to them. They told me it was a good thing I didn't share my information with just any stranger on the phone. I mean, don't they focus on situations like these on the news all the time? These days, people have their identities stolen all the time! Strange thing was, I really did have a prescription ready at the pharmacy! How would a stranger actually know something like that?
This morning, 6/16/2012, around 11:30, I had gotten an automated reminder call from my local Walgreens letting me know I had an Rx ready for pick up. Then, I got additional calls from the Omaha, NE number at 10:08 a.m. and 3:06 p.m. both of which I missed. I called my Titusville Walgreens and told them about the calls from out of state and they said there was no reason for anyone else besides them, in state or out of state to call me for a reminder. I checked my voice mail and found they left a message to call back in the next 24 hours at 800-289-1179 The person I spoke to at my local Walgreens suggested that I report the calls as intrusive and bogus.
After doing more investigation, someone on one of the websites suggested the calls came from a collection company posing as Walgreens. They possibly acquired my contact information in violation of multiple Federal laws and were using it in an attempt to make contact with me. They suggested that I contact Walgreens and report it immediately. That's what I did. I hope this helps someone.
