Northern Indiana County Warns of Hoax STD Calls

August 22, 2008

St. Joseph County Health Department officials say residents should disregard any automated calls they receive purportedly from the agency about possible exposure to HIV or STDs. The messages are a hoax, said the department, adding that it would never leave personal medical information on an answering machine or through an automated system. Barb Baker, nursing director for the Health Department, said some of the people who received the calls were alarmed by the message. The calls appear to have been made at random, going to people ages 11-70, she noted.
