Maybe this has been going on in your neighborhood for awhile, but it's new here. Since a lot of C2 scripts are coming via e-Script, those with fake scripts have had to step it up a notch to slip a few through the system.
Someone in town obtained some really nice heavy blue paper which looks like it is security feature paper. Upon closer inspection it's just nice paper and doesn't have any security features at all. But that's just part one of the scam.
The second thing is the timing when it is brought in... lunch time or after doctor's offices close. Nothing new there... it's actually a red flag to most pharmacists.
The new trick is that whoever brings in the script comes in wearing scrubs. Some will even have a lanyard with some ID hanging down from it. "I'm the caretaker of this patient" that just got out of the hospital, they will say.
Interesting, though, that the Rx is always for Oxycodone 30mg #180. And of course, they don't have the patient's pharmacy insurance. Cash will be just fine.
Keep your eyes peeled for this new scam.
