Feb 16: Another senior medical advisory scam

"If you are a senior citizen, listen closely to the following information. Each year, there has been a significant rise in the number of senior citizens suffering death and serious life-threatening injuries from a delay in response times for medical emergencies, fires, burglaries, or even a simple fall. The American Heart Association and the American Diabetic Association are urging all seniors to get a personal, life-saving, emergency medical alert system for their home. For the first time, the senior medical advisory is providing senior citizens with this life-saving emergency medical alert equipment at no charge to seniors. Press one now to find out how with just one push of a button you can have a live, certified, emergency medical technician on the line to help you in just seconds. Again, press one now, and you will never have to feel helpless, worried, or by yourself in an emergency situation. Press five now to be removed from our senior medical advisory calling list."

Today I let this one play out and entered "1." They dropped the call. What is the benefit of this daily call to the person placing it?

I have severe medical issues and thought this could benefit me.I wanted more information. After pressing 1 I was put on hold for 4 mins! Finally my name is Ashley how are you today? I said not so good.
I ask who they were and if they were online.She hung up. What are companies thinking? I was called 35 times last month be them. That was the only time i talked to a live person.
