Andrew Adams, KSL NewsradioThe Salt Lake City Police Department has a warning about a new Medicare scam.

A man and a woman are soliciting new eye, hearing and dental programs from Medicare. They are calling people and going door to door. Detective Jeff Bedard says what the suspects really want are social security numbers, bank account numbers, and generally to take old folks to the cleaners. "When people out of the blue start contacting you, requesting your bank account numbers, your date of birth, your social security number, that's just wrong," says Bedard.

Police have very little information to go on. They say the suspects are a man and a woman in their 20s. The woman apparently looks almost ready to give birth.
