New Decade, New Census, New Scam

Hurray for a new decade! May the next 10 years of your life be joyful and prosperous.

With a new decade comes a new census, the decennial task of figuring out who lives where in our great country. Unfortunately, it also means that the nefarious among us may be looking for ways to steal other people's identity. The Kansas Attorney General warns citizens not to reply to emails purportedly from the Census Bureau asking for personal information. Personal information will not be requested by the Census Bureau via email. Protect your identity by promptly deleting those emails.

Incidentally, the Census Bureau's regional office in Kansas City is hiring for the 2010 Census. If you are looking for a job, you might want to check them out.
