Two days after filling out a state form to apply for health coverage, the Oregon woman received a call with good news: She'd been approved. The caller just needed her bank account information to cover the sign-up fee.
The only problem? There was no sign-up fee, and the caller was a fake.
This fall, thousands of uninsured Oregonians will be contacted about enrolling in health coverage. It's part of a nationwide push to get more people covered under the federal health reforms known as Obamacare, which requires most people to have coverage or pay a fine after Jan. 1. But authorities fear criminals will try to take advantage of widespread confusion over the law.

How many billions in subsidies will go to people who are illegal, not even signed up, or in jail?
Another unintended consequence. I’m sure it will be Bush’s fault once the media finds the right spin.
The scammers and con men are already all over ObammyCare.
We must think most of them are Democrat donors.
They already have: those criminals like Obama, Schumer, Pelosi, the entire Democrat Party - the list goes on and on.
The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.
Commie Obamas talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obamas first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obamacare Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizens communications
* Use Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obamacare Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress
I’ve read the article twice now. Does the law say it’s against the law to help someone sign up and charge them? I’ll bet it doesn’t.
You can bet there will be a huge number of scammers. Always is when government creates an artificial money spigot
Obama is giving away $700 million to leftist groups to sign people up. Ain’t that enough?
No the Mantra is it was a Republican idea when Clinton was President.
What is the difference between these so called scammers and the OFA people I bet they are one in the same.
The whole thing is a scam.
The timing is suspicious, what are the odds that two days after filling out the form a scammer phones out of the blue? Someone in the Obamacare office is either selling info to scammers or doing the scamming himself.
I Can't blame the Germans for backing out of their information-sharing agreement with the US. The Snowden affair proves we can't be trusted with sensitive information, this just reinforces the argument.
ObamaCare (tm) is one of the grandest scams in all human history. While smaller than fiat money and perpetual debt of central banking, it is almost as large as so-called “Social Security”.
Lies, Coveting and Theft are all Commandments that protect private property. All three of these government programs are based on Lies, Coveting and Theft.
Criminals will try to take advantage over confusion of the law? CRIMINALS PASSED THE LAW!
When unintended consequences become intended consequences.
Notice how we always are hearing about these kind of scams and welfare or SS scams but they never do anything about it.
The Government is one big Scam.
And, that's the just ones that work for the US Gubment.
