It sounded too good to be true and it was.
The scammers calling from Montreal, Canada, told seniors that for around $300 they could buy a "drug discount card" that would pay for all their prescriptions and that they wouldn't need a Medicare part D plan.
It's hard to say exactly how many seniors were duped and how much they lost, says William Hodor, a lawyer with the Federal Trade Commission in Chicago, who handled the case. But he estimates somewhere around 3,600 seniors fell victim to the scam between October 2012 and March 2013.
