OSF HealthCare Warns of Potential Phone Scam

May 15, 2019 - OSF HealthCare has been made aware of a potential phone scam making use of its caller ID.

OSF HealthCare has been made aware of a potential phone scam making use of its caller ID. OSF HealthCare Holy Family Medical Center has received information in which an individual received a call from what appears to be OSF HealthCare Holy Family Medical Center. The caller then asked for credit card information.

Technology makes it easy for scammers to fake caller ID information and OSF HealthCare wants the public to be aware these calls are taking place. We have also reported the suspected scam to Monmouth police. If you receive such a call, particularly if you have had no interaction with a department at OSF Holy Family Medical Center, hang up.

If you are concerned the call may be legitimate, call OSF Holy Family Medical Center’s main switchboard (309) 734-3141 and ask the operator to connect you to a specific department the scammer might have mentioned. Do NOT call the number provided during the original call.

You are encouraged to report the potential scam call to the Monmouth police department.
