Better Business Bureau Warning of Census Scams

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting thousands for temporary positions but the Better Business Bureau says to beware of scams.

Scammers are posting about open census jobs online and are then asking to be paid fees for applications or training.

This is an immediate giveaway the posting is fake.

Federal agencies never charge application fees.

The Census Bureau will also not charge you for training or ask you to buy any equipment.
