Avoid Census Scams this Spring
February 24, 2020
As the Census comes upon us in the coming months we want to help protect you from any potentials scams that fraudsters could use during this time period.
One of the scams that fraudsters are using is sending out a fake questionnaire to Medicare beneficiaries asking for their Medicare number and other personal information. Medicare will never call you unsolicited or send you any mail unsolicited.
To verify that mail received from the Census Bureau is legitimate look for these key details:
- Look for either the U.S. Department of Commerce or the U.S. Census Bureau in the return address.
- Check that the return address is located in Jeffersonville, IN.
