Boundary Community Hospital has been made aware of a phone scam using the hospital's main call-in line, 267-3141 ... and if you have caller ID, that number is the surest way to know that the call is fake and the caller out to take your money, as that is a call in line only -- no legitimate out-going calls can be made on that line! According to hospital staff, the robo-caller attempts to get the person receiving the call to say "yes," typically by asking if the number dialed, the one you answered, is your correct phone number. Once the word "yes" is said, you are informed that you just agreed to buy something. If you receive such a call, hang up immediately!
