Trying to Protect Seniors and Medicare

Sometimes a new one pops up, but when it comes to victimizing seniors and Medicare, it's the tried and true scams that keep coming back, and keep working. That's according to the Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol.

Herb Trix reports. 
The toll-free number for the Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol is 800-423-2449.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
