Clearwater, Florida – Residents in a Clearwater neighborhood found their mailboxes stuffed with medical discount card that offer discounts of up to 75 percent for medications, but is it the real deal?

The discount cards from a company called Uniscript arrived in an envelope, addressed only to the resident of the home.

"Consumers tend to be confused on what they're really offering," said Bryan Oglesby with the Better Business Bureau of West Florida.

10 News looked into the company by performing a search with the Better Business Bureau.

The search found that it received an "F" grade with the organization following 34 complaint that were filed and failure to respond to four of them.

"Receipt of these cards is raising concern from consumers who are worried about potential identity theft, healthcare fraud, or that their personal information is being collected and distributed for unknown purposes," according to a review on the BBB website.

Despite the concerns expressed to the BBB, on its website, Uniscript promises that it "will never sell or rent your personal information to a third party."

The Better Business Bureau warns consumers about prescription drug discount cards.

Prescription drug cards come under many different names across the country, which is the reason that the BBB is issuing a warning to consumers.

"Do a search by their name, the phone number the address, get a good match and make sure you're checking the right company out and do your due diligence before you use that company," said Oglesby.

While Uniscript says it will not sell or share your information, there are countless other cards on the market. The BBB recommends that you read the fine print for each company before using their card.
