Better Business Bureau warns against Affordable Care Act scams
Officials are warning the public to be wary of impostors posing as experts on the Affordable Care Act, telling consumers they are eligible for the health insurance card in exchange for their bank account and Social Security numbers.
Better Business Bureau Spokesperson Tom Joyce told the Chicago Tribune, “People are looking for help on it. It’s a very complicated issue, and therefore you can get information out of somebody.”
Experts note the government does not make calls for this type of information and recommend verifying the identity of the caller before releasing any information.
