We Are Not Calling You
We want to let everyone know that there is a telemarketing group that is identifying themselves as Senior Benefits.
First, and foremost, we want you to know that this is Not our company, nor are they affiliated with us in any form.
Always know that our advisors do not ‘Cold Call’ consumers.
Our advisors only contact those individuals by phone who have either been referred to us personally or sent a request to be contacted.
Senior Benefit Services, Inc is aware that this group is using a variation of our name and due to our top internet rankings, many folks are contacting our office in error, thinking it is our company calling them.
It appears that the numbers that are showing up on individual Caller ID displays are in fact ‘false’ numbers that are being used to trick people into answering the call (many times showing a local area code along with a familiar 3-digit central office number).
Our company would never use this type of deceptive technology and does not condone anyone’s use of it.
What we have been able to determine based on all the calls that we are receiving from consumers is that this telemarketing group is calling for multiple products that include burial plots, medical alert equipment, and even final expense life insurance.
Our company does NOT sell burial plots nor medical alert equipment.
While our advisors have fulfilled client’s requests for final expense life insurance on a limited basis, this is once again not done by telemarketing but rather in existing client annual reviews.
Need Medsup or Medigap Coverage?
We absolutely hate that you are being cold called by someone using our identity.
However, if you find yourself in-need of coverage, you can read our guide to Medicare Supplement Plans and get a few quotes if you have any additional questions.
What To Do Next
If anyone is ever able to get us information regarding who this telemarketing group actually is or who they are contracted by, then we would appreciate this information so that we can file a formal complaint against them with the Attorney General’s Office.
We have been able to theorize that most of these calls are coming from out of Pakistan and other areas of the Middle East. There are numerous call centers in these countries who are trying to connect with insurance agents on LinkedIn to use their services. Most appear to specialize in telemarketing leads for final expense agents. From what we can tell, these telemarketers are not trying to necessarily make a phone sale but rather schedule an appointment for an insurance agent or insurance agency here in the United States. While the FCC or Attorney General Office do not have jurisdiction in foreign countries, they can hold the insurance agent/agency liable for hiring of these groups who knowingly contact folks who are registered with the Do Not Call registry. One agent in the state of Florida has been identified as having hired one of these telemarketing groups or his agency has. As of this date and time, we do not know how the state Department of Insurance has handled the situation.
