Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued a warning about a scam involving medical alert devices for seniors.

Cuccinelli says callers pose as representatives of a medical alert company, claiming to need more information like a debit or credit card number or a home address in order to have a free device delivered to the person's home.

The attorney general says everyone should remember to never give out personal or financial information if someone initiates a call to you.
