Health Care Scam in Coffee and Houston Counties | WDHN

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)—Wiregrass authorities say a “new scam” is targeting health authorities in Coffee and surrounding counties.

On Tuesday, a person or people are calling nurse practitioners at “walk-in clinics” at Enterprise and Dothan.
They specifically ask for a nurse practitioner by name working in a clinic. They say the nurse didn’t respond to a subpoena, and now there are warrants for the person’s arrest.

The culprits ask the intended victim to go to a local financial institution or pharmacy and buy credit cards to pay the fines for not showing up for the subpoena.

They also order the intended victim to come to the New Brockton Police Department as a meeting place.

Authorities say they would never call anyone about a subpoena, let alone seek a fine.

Coffee County Sheriff’s officials also say that if you get a call from someone identifying themselves as Matthew Dykes or
Greg Smith with their department, it’s part of the “scam”.

If you receive a call like this, they prompt you to block the number and end the call.
