Recently, I found this article about how those scamsters target hospital patients to get their money. It is pretty interesting, and I think you all should know about these tricks to avoid get stolen. Most scamsters might target those sedated patients, like when the patients in their sedative status, or when the patients went out of their room for test, they might steal the cash or credit cards from their wallet or purse left behind. Some scamsters even pretend to be the hospital administer, calling the patient in request of further information for the processing of their insurance payment. They might ask those sensitive personal information, like social security, and even credit card numbers. So, nowadays, those con artists can think of many way to steal people's money, and they are heartless.

Taking an advantage of a person like that, it almost seems inhuman! Thanks for the heads up Parker. My golden rule I go by to avoid scams, is don't spend a penny and don't give out your financial information.
