Scammers Out to Profit on U. S. Supreme Court's Ruling on the Affordable Care Act

Share this page

It's enough to make you sick. No sooner had the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the Affordable Care Act than scam artists began working the phones. Claiming to be from the government, they're saying that under the Affordable Care Act, they need to verify some information. For example, they might have the routing number of the person's bank, and then use that information to get the person to reveal the entire account number. Other times, they have asked for credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, Medicare ID, or other personal information.

The FTC cautions you not to give out personal or financial information in response to unsolicited phone calls, emails, or knocks on your door. Scam artists want your information to commit identity theft, charge your existing credit cards, debit your checking account, open new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, write fraudulent checks, or take out loans in your name.

If you get a call from someone who claims to be from the government and who asks for your personal information, hang up. It's a scam. The government and legitimate organizations with which you do business have the information they need and will not ask you for it. Then, file a complaint at or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP. If you think your identity's been stolen, visit or call 1-877-ID-THEFT. You also can file a complaint with your state Attorney General.

A Verizon telemarketer called me and said if I switched to a Verizon Home Cell it would save me $20. a month. My telephone was off for 2weeks, the reception is lousy, the telemarketers still bother me and my bill is still the same and now the think they are going to charge me, two weeks later to switch it back!

Verizon is a fraud,a liar, a thief and very useless scam!
