Heads up! Affordable Health Care Scams

As if the Affordable Care Act isn’t complicated enough, the scammers have already figured out ways to use it to try and get your personal information.

Phishing emails are already going out with a variety of subject lines promising to ‘help you get signed up’ or offering the ‘best deals’. Some threaten users with fines or penalties if they don’t immediate sign up through a provided link.

And it’s not just email messages. Phone calls are being received and the user being told that they need to take your information and sign you up with an Exchange ‘right away’. Of course, as part of their ‘service’ they ask for your name, social security number, and sometimes even a payment.

Tell your users to just delete any such messages and hang up on any of these calls.
