Census officials warn Colo. residents of scammers
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – Weld County Census officials and the Colorado Attorney General’s office are warning residents about scammers claiming to be Census workers who ask people for their credit card and bank account information.
Weld County’s Census office said Monday they’ve had two reports of such scams where people go door-to-door and say they’re Census workers. Census officials are reminding people that workers will not be visiting residents until March and even then they won’t be asking for Social Security numbers, or bank and credit card information.
The state Attorney General’s office also is warning residents to not let anyone into their homes, even if they are Census workers.
