Recently, the Pleasant Hill Police Department has received an increase in complaints about telephone scammers. Fraudulent calls are made to residents insisting they have outstanding medical bills to pay. In some instances, residents are asked to provide health insurance account numbers and bank information for bill payment.


“If you receive a call that seems suspicious, do not engage the caller,” said Al Pizzano, Pleasant Hill Police Chief. “It is best to hang up the phone and call your healthcare provider to verify your account status.”
