Genetic Testing Scam Exploits Cancer Fears

September 16, 2019

A CBS News story says recruiters are showing up at senior events promoting a genetic test they claim is completely covered by Medicare. They promise the test will reveal information about their cancer risk, but the results often do not come in and the bills can be in the thousands. The cancer test is the hook but the real goal is to collect as many Medicare numbers as possible.
