Beware of hearing aid scams by using these tips


GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan (WOTV) – If a hearing aid chord sounds too good to be true, it probably is! Scamming is not a new, emerging crime, the sale of defective hearing aids is on the rise. The Michigan Attorney General is warning consumers to be aware of the sale of counterfeit over-the-counter devices.

How do you know if a hearing aid is fake?

If you discover an over-the-counter hearing aid, do not purchase the device. The FDA has not approved the sale of over-the-counter aids.

How do I go about finding a genuine hearing aid?

Our hearing expert, Dr Pam Keenan of McDonald’s Audiology and Hearing Health Services, recommends making an appointment with an audiologist to receive a new device.
