Renown Health says that phone scammers are posing as Renown employees. 

They say that these scammers are calling patients and asking for personal information, including credit card information and social security numbers. 

Renown says that you can spot that the call is fraudulent if they demand payment immediately or ask for full social security numbers. Renown will never demand immediate payment and they will only ask for the last four digits of your social security number. 

Renown has reported this to local authorities but want to spread the word so that no one falls for the scam. They say you are always welcome to call their business office directly at 775-982-4130 to ensure that you're speaking with a true Renown employee. 

If you're worried you've already received a call from a scammer, you can call that same number for assistance.
