Con Artists See Opportunity in Federal Health Care Law
Enrollment has just begun and there are already some scams related to the Affordable Care Act.
Reanna Smith-Hamblin with the Better Business Bureau of Kentucky and Indiana says scammers love to prey on confusion over such complex things as the health care law, so her advice is to never give personal information to unsolicited callers.
“This people are after your personal, your identity, so be very careful about anyone that contacts you on the Affordable Care Act," advises Smith-Hamblin.
She adds that you can't even trust caller ID because of spoofing devices that make it look like scammers are calling from a particular place, when in fact, they are not.
