Scam Using 1-800-222-1222

The West Virginia Poison Center reminds people that Poison Centers in the United States will never ask for personal information such as social security number or credit card information and will only call individuals to follow up on poisoning issues if permission has been granted. If you ever receive a call from 1-800-222-1222 that you were not expecting, please hand up and call 1-800-222-1222 to reach a real Poison Center and report the unexpected call.
