People are receiving calls from scammers using altered caller ID to make it falsely appear that Virginia Gay Hospital is the caller. The scammers try to sell products or sometimes attempt to gather sensitive personal information.

No one from Virginia Gay Hospital or Clinics will ever call you to sell something. If you get such a call you can be certain it is a scam.

If you are at all concerned about the source of the call please ask for the person’s name, hang up, and call Virginia Gay at 472-6200 to ask for that person. If the caller won’t leave a name or they attempt to pressure you into talking with them it is a scam.

Using a false caller ID in an attempt to scam someone is a violation of the Federal Truth in Caller Act and is a crime. Theft of personal and financial information is a crime as well. You can report scam calls to the Federal Trade Commission at 877-382-4261 or at www.consumer.ftc.gov.
