Baptist Health: Calls Asking for Money Are Scams
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Baptist Health Paducah is warning folks about a scam that involves people pretending to be employees of the hospital.

In a press release, the hospital says they have learned that several people have received phone calls from someone pretending to represent the hospital and asking for money. 

The hospital and Baptist Health Foundation in Paducah remind everyone that they never solicit funds over the phone, so these calls are most likely part of a spoofing scam. Caller ID spoofing allows robo-callers and scammers appear as if they are calling from a local number. 

Baptist Health advises the community to be cautious when receiving calls from anyone who claims to represent the hospital and asks for donations.

Never give out important financial information over the phone.
