Consumer Focus Monthly Newsletter: How to avoid census scams

Watch out for requests for personal information via emails and calls 

Here’s one prediction you can count on: Scams, frauds and rumors will shadow the 2020 U.S. Census.    

For the first time, you can choose to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. You should receive an invitation in the mail before Census Day -- April 1, 2020. For those who don’t respond to that invitation or subsequent mailings, expect a knock on your door later in the spring or summer.
