Census Scams


'Phishing' is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as
usernames, passwords, social security numbers, and bank account or credit card details by
masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Phishing is typically carried out
by email and it often directs users to enter sensitive information at a fake web site whose look and feel
are almost identical to the legitimate one.

Other Scams:
The Census Bureau does NOT conduct the 2010 Census via the Internet
The Census Bureau does not send emails about participating in the 2010 Census
The Census Bureau never:
• Asks for your full social security number
• Asks for money or a donation
• Sends requests on behalf of a political party
• Requests PIN codes, passwords or similar access information for credit cards, banks or other
financial accounts.
