Look Out for These 4 Census Scams
The 2010 U.S. Census survey will be mailed to all U.S. residents in mid- March, opening the door to con artists who will use the program as an opportunity to swindle people out of their money and their identity. The Census questionnaire asks 10 questions, none involving personal financial information such as bank account or credit card numbers or your Social Security number. There have already been reports in parts of the country where people are being asked for financially sensitive information by people pretending to be census takers.
