The calls you’re receiving from so-called “American Benefits” are in fact telemarketing calls.
You’re offered information about final expense life insurance products approved in your state. Sometimes the calls are about other products like term insurance, burial plots, or medical alert equipment.
The representative informs you that if you’re interested in learning more about their services, a local agent will call you back with more information.
The answer is no.
The calls you’re receiving are not coming from American Benefits, although there is a tech company with the same name as well as an actual insurance company called American Senior Benefits.
The calls are from a telemarketing group that is identifying itself as American Benefits.
Although it looks like the calls are coming from a local number, these calling centers are often located internationally, in the Philippines, India, and Pakistan.
There are several things you can do to prevent receiving the false American Benefits calls:
- Register your home or mobile phone number for free with the National Do Not Call Registry. The registration never expires and you can register up to three numbers.
- Sign up for a robocall blocking service with your carrier. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon offer free services that you can sign up for to help reduce unwanted calls.
- Download a robocall blocker app such as Hiya, Nomorobo, or Truecaller to filter the incoming calls.
- Download the AT&T Call Protect app. It will help you detect and block potentially fraudulent calls.
What should I do if I receive an American Benefits telemarketing call?
If you receive a telemarketing call from American Benefits, you may try the following:
- Don’t engage in conversation and make it clear from the start that you don’t wish to be contacted in the future.
- If you have registered with the National Do Not Call Registry, but you continue receiving telemarketing calls after 30 days from the registration date, you can file a complaint.
- Report scam calls to the National Consumers League Fraud Center, the Federal Trade Commission, and/or the Federal Communications Commission.
- Make sure not to disclose any personal information to telemarketers, no matter whether the call seems suspicious or not.
