Affordable Care Act Prompts New Scam

WEST LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Affordable Care Act is now joining the list of ways con artists are trying to scam you.

WEST LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The Affordable Care Act is now joining the list of ways con artists are trying to scam you.

The Better Business Bureau in Arkansas says many people around the country are falling victim to the new scam. No victims are reported in Arkansas, and officials want to keep it that way.

Scammers are calling people and offering them a health care card, which doesn't exist, and in return, they're retrieving personal information.

"They're preying for that fear and confusion. They are wanting to get something for nothing. They're wanting to get information to use for themselves or to sell it and make information on selling a fake identity," said Mike Rohrer of the Arkansas BBB.

The Better Business Bureau says the government will never call or email you. The government will only send out hard copy mail.
