Callers Falsely Representing Children’s Hospital Possible Scammers
Individuals who are NOT CONNECTED with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles are calling individuals to offer services that will lower your bills. The name of the caller shows as “Children’s Hospital” and the phone number shows as (323) 361-6866.
The hospital wants all individuals to take these types of calls very seriously. These callers may ask you to give out confidential information to steal your identity. We take these actions seriously and are working with the authorities to stop these callers.
