Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama is warning people about a phone scam targeting people around the country.

Officials say these scammers claim to be Blue Cross Blue Shield employees to try to obtain or verify victims' personal information.

BCBS states these calls are fake, and real employees will not call people to obtain or verify personal information.

Officials warn not to answer calls from 1-518-381-2264.

"We encourage the public to remain vigilant, protect their personal information, and guard against providing personal information during calls that claim to be from Blue Cross," officials said on social media.
