I received a notification recently from a reliable insurance news source that there are a group of individuals posing as Federal Government employees calling up people telling them they need their private information in order to enroll them in the mandatory healthcare insurance program.
THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM!!!
Please, please, please...Do not give out any private information--date of birth, social security number, financial information, etc.--to ANYONE who calls you wanting this information. THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS!
MY ADVICE: Seek out a trusted and federally-trained insurance agent (such as myself) for any and all assistance regarding the upcoming enrollment. Please share this information with your family, friends, colleagues, etc. ASAP!
