(KMOV.COM) -- Scam artists are using the Affordable Care Act in order to get citizens personal information.
The Federal Trade Commision says these scammers call victims claiming to be from the government and saying the need to verify information because of the recent ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
The FTC also say the crooks may already have the routing number to your bank account to get you to reveal your entire account number, credit card, or social security number.
If anyone claiming to be with the government calls you and asks for this kind of information, hang up. Then file a complaint at ftc.gov or call 1-877-FTC-HELP.
If you think your identity's been stolen, visit ftc.gov/idtheft or call 1-877-ID-THEFT. You also can file a complaint with your state Attorney General.
