Scammers are scheming as reopens

Consumer Alerts from the Federal Trade Commission

by Colleen Tressler, Division of Consumer and Business Education, FTC

The Coronavirus pandemic has not only had a dramatic health impact, but also an economic blow as many Americans are now unemployed — and uninsured. As a result, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has re-opened for a "Special Enrollment Period," from February 15, 2021 – May 15, 2021. 

This Special Enrollment Period will give people who need health care coverage the chance to sign up. But it also gives scammers a new chance to call, email, send letters and texts, trying to get your money — and your personal and financial information.


This is a free service provided by the Federal Trade Commission.
