WAYNE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Pine Belt hospital has received several reports from people in the area regarding bogus phone calls posing as a hospital employee. 

Wayne General Hospital officials said that the calls show up on Caller ID as Wayne General Hospital, and the caller on the other line is posing as a hospital employee. 

The caller claims they are helping them lower credit card rate. 

Officials warn that this is not legitimate, and urge the community to not give out any personal information. 

If you have fallen victim to this scam, call the Mississippi Attorney General's office at 601-359-3680.
