Anthem Warns Customers of Email, Phone Scam
Anthem, the parent company of Anthem Blue Cross in California, is warning former and current customers about phone and email scams, following last week's announcement of a data breach affecting as many as 80 million individuals. The scam emails include a "click here link" for credit monitoring and the fraudulent calls, which appear to be from Anthem, are attempting to gain individuals' personal information. Anthem says the company has not authorized such actions.
