The information contained in this guide provides the actions recommended by the Whispering Pines Police Department and the financial industry to help reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of identity theft.
FirstHealth of the Carolinas
PINEHURST – Hospitals throughout the country are warning their patients about a phone scam in which callers posing as hospital officials attempt to obtain personal information.
If you receive a call from someone identifying him/herself as a representative of one of the FirstHealth of the Carolinas entities and telling you that your insurance benefits include special vitamins, weight-loss pills, oils or pain creams, do not provide any insurance or personal information.
No one from FirstHealth or its affiliated organizations is making these calls.
“We understand the anxiety this phone scam can cause,” says FirstHealth spokesperson Gretchen Kelly. “We want to assure our patients that their records are considered protected health information under federal and state law. FirstHealth has safeguards in place to maintain your confidential health record and protect your privacy.”
Because these calls are being placed all over the country, local officials do not believe that the phone scam is directly connected to FirstHealth’s protected health information.
The North Carolina State Attorney General’s Office, the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement agencies have been notified of this issue and are taking appropriate action.
“We are paying very close attention to this issue in coordination with the North Carolina Hospital Association and state and federal agencies,” Kelly says. “If there is anything we can do to further assure anyone of the confidentiality of their hospital records, or if you believe you have been contacted by a scammer, call the State Attorney General’s Office at (919) 716-6000 or FirstHealth at (910) 715-1000.”
Prescription Medicine Disposal
The Whispering Pines Police Department has been authorized by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to become a local collection site for unwanted or outdated Pharmaceutical drugs (controlled substances) that are no longer needed. There will be a large metal drop box labeled “Prescription Medicine Disposal Only” placed inside the police department lobby to assist residents with disposing of any prescription pills that are no longer needed. We are asking that residents empty their pill bottles into a large zip-lock bag and bring the sealed zip-lock bag to the police department. The resident can then place the zip-lock bag into the drop box. (Please make sure to only submit pills and do not include chemicals, syringes, liquids, or vitamins, in the zip-lock bags.)
This program will begin on April 1st and residents can drop off their prescription pills on Monday thru Friday between the hours of 8AM-4:30PM. If you have any questions please contact Lt. Rodney Dozier at 949-9961.
