Is it impossible that your sister was making enquiries to see if *you* were eligible for any support and wires got crossed?

This happened "a few years back"? Why is it suddenly of interest now? Has something come up?

Did you ask your sister about it a few years ago, when it happened? From what you've written it does sound like attempted fraud by tour sister, but the agency caught on to that and no doubt took cake of it.

If your father is eligible for some assistance, perhaps you should apply for it, legitmately.

If you don't have caller ID, you really should get it so you know who called. NEVER give out SS and Dob on the phone. I suggest you check for identity theft and closely monitor bank accounts.

There is lot of fraud out rhere, concerning the elderly, and you should definitely be calling your sister to find out if she has been initiating any sort of "care", related to your Dad!

This person who called you, might well have been fishing for information from a vulnerable senior, and believe me, they are out there!

A simple call to your sister should be able to clear this up, and in the meantime, see if you can find out who it was that called. Do you have caller ID? Another thing, is your Dad "with it enough", to answer calls, and know enough not to give out personal information? I know my FIL who lives with us is very uncomfortable taking calls, and while he might have some early Dementia, I would say that he is still quite "with it", but the types of vultures have a way with putting people at ease, making the elder think that they are just "there to help".

If you do investigate, you may find that your Dad has been hacked in some way, and should check into it before it's too late!

You do not need to be accusatory towards your sister, as there may be a very good reason for the call, and she may be looking into ways to hel, but didn't inform you first. But make the call, for your own peace of mind.

Have you asked your sister about this? Seems childishly simple, I know...
