Watch out, there’s a new scam doing the rounds.  Some fraudsters in the Nîmes area are posing as hospital agents, and offering free hospital care.

The “hospital agents”, using a mobile number, ask users to tell them confidential information in exchange for free care.  The information they usually ask for is the name and number of your mutuel insurance, before indicating that care provided at the hospital will be free for that particular insurance.

People have also been posing as Bagnols-sur-Cèze hospital agents.

Be on your guard, never give out confidential information to someone you don’t know.
