FREE MEDICAL EVALUATIONS/TESTING
The free medical evaluations/testing scheme is similar to the previous scheme, except that in this case, free medical tests or evaluations are offered.
- Companies use phone solicitation, ads in newspapers, and coupons mailed or delivered to consumer’s home to advertise free testing or services.
- Mobile testing centers frequent shopping malls, retirement communities, fraternal organizations, civic groups, and conventions.
- Consumer is asked to complete a form to receive free tests. The form asks for Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, or insurance numbers.
