LOUISIANA (KALB News Channel 5) - The Louisiana Attorney General's office is warning senior citizens of a scam about free medical alert devices.

A representative from Buddy Caldwell office says they have received numerous complaints of people receiving unsolicited telephone calls offering the devices.  The callers have allegedly asked for personal information and require payment for related costs, usually through Western Union. 

The calls often appear to be from a real company and land line phone number.  If you have received a suspicious call, you are urged to contact the Attorney General's office consumer protection hotline. 

The number is 1-800-351-4889.
