Thanks, I appreciate the assurances that in this case at least, someone is not using the government's name to swindle me. At any rate, I think I'm going to wait for them to send me the paper survey (something in me still feels safer with hard copies of these things than submitting all this info online).

Never heard of it, call and check! Might be a fake! Better to be safe than sorry and nothing wrong with being suspicious these days!
Happy New Year!

No, I have not heard of this. The best thing to do is call on it because if it is a fake they will televise it on the news so no one gets duped especially the elderly who start to be vulnerable to things like that. Please call and find out. Thanks :)

It sounded odd to me so I did a google search for "American Community Survey" and found this: www.census.gov/acs/www/ Maybe this will help.

good luck!

I just got mail from the US Census Bureau about an American Community Survey which I was supposedly selected to complete, and am required to by law. Although it looks rather official, I'm frankly not sure whether to believe it or if it seems more like a scam--kind of sad that I should be so skeptical. Has anyone else received or heard about this? Thanks for any info.
