Be Cautious About Giving Info to Census Workers

 

With the U.S. Census process beginning, the Better Business Bureau (BBB)  advises people to be cooperative,  but cautious,  so as not to become a victim of fraud or identity theft.   The first phase of the 2010 U.S.  Census is underway, as workers have begun verifying the addresses of households across the  country.   Eventually, more than 140,000 U.S. Census workers will count every person in the United States and will gather information about every person living at each address including name, age, gender, race, and other relevant data. 

 

 

The big question is - how do you tell the difference between a U.S.Census worker and a con artist?    BBB offers the following advice   If a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door,  they will have a badge, a handheld device, a Census Bureau canvas bag, and a confidentiality notice.

 

Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions.  However, you should never invite anyone you do not know into your home..

 

Census workers are currently only knocking on doors to verify address

information.    Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking

information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S.Census.  While the Census Bureau might ask for basic financial information, such as a salary range, it will not ask for Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers nor will employees solicit donations.

 

Eventually, Census workers may contact you by telephone, mail, or in person at home.  However, they will not contact you by Email, so be on the lookout for Email scams impersonating the Census.   Never click on a link or open any attachments in an Email that are supposedly  from the U.S. Census Bureau.
