FTC Says the Obamacare Ruling is Prompting Scams

More great news on the health care front, via The Hill. The FTC is now reporting that the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare is prompting scams.

 

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said that the illegal activity began after the Supreme Court ruled on June 28 to uphold the vast majority of the law. 

Scam artists "say they're from the government" and use the Affordable Care Act as a hook to verify information, according to an FTC alert. 

"They might have the routing number from your bank, and then use that information to get you to reveal the entire account number," the alert stated. "Or, they'll ask for your credit card or Social Security number, Medicare ID, or other personal information."

According to the FTC website, the scammers are asking to verify bank information or asking for personal identification numbers for the purpose of committing fraud. The FTC advises that people just hang up, saying that the government has all the information it needs on each individual, and would not have to ask them for it.
