'Obamacare' scams emerge as new policies take effect
Scammers are exploiting the Affordable Care Act (ACA) as a way to fool Americans into sharing their personal information. Many key provisions of the ACA have either gone into effect or will go into effect soon, so don't let confusion around the new law cause you to fall for a scam.
How the scam works:
You receive a call from someone claiming to be from the federal government. The caller informs you you've been selected to receive insurance cards through the new Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"). However, before he/she can mail your card, the caller needs to collect personal information.
