Senior Final Expense Information / Fraudulent Unsolicited Mailing
I received this carbon copy mailer with a reference of SENIOR FINAL EXPENSE INFORMATION. This mailer suggests that there is a senior plan that may cover up to $15, 000 of my final expenses but provides no real information. No company name, no contact name, no phone number and only an address for National Processing Center where the card is to be mailed to after providing them with a signature, age, spouse and phone number. The mailer cover also contains "Not affiliated with Social Security or any governmental agency" which makes it look official in additional to the Washington, DC return address but its vagueness concerened me. After much internet research I have found this is part of a large scam across the US to exploit seniors by using refernces to Medicare, Final Expenses and other financial lures. I found documentation of a law suit for this in Texas. Something really needs to be done to stop this fraudulent use of the mail system to exploit seniors like me. I hope others will be diligent in looking into the legitamacy of mailings like this before providing personal information.
