Important information about 2010 CENSUS

> WARNING: 2010 Census Cautions from the Better Business Bureau Be Cautious About Giving Info to Census Workers by Susan Johnson
>
> With the U.S. Census process beginning, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises people to be cooperative, but cautious, so as not to become a victim of fraud or identity theft.
>
> The first phase of the 2010 U.S. Census is under way as workers have begun verifying the addresses of households across the country. Eventually, more than 140,000 U.S. Census workers will count every person in the United States and will gather information about every person living at each address including name, age, gender, race, and other relevant data.
>
> The big question is - how do you tell the difference between a U.S. Census worker and a con artist? The BBB offers the following advice: ** If a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door, they will have a badge, a hand held device, a Census Bureau canvas bag, and a confidentiality notice. Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions. However, you should never invite anyone you don't know into your home.
>
> ** Census workers are currently only knocking on doors to verify address information. Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S. Census.
>
> REMEMBER, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ASK, YOU REALLY ONLY NEED TO TELL THEM HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE AT YOUR ADDRESS.
>
> While the Census Bureau might ask for basic financial information, such as a salary range, YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION.
>
> The Census Bureau will not ask for Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers, nor will employees solicit donations. Any one asking for that information is NOT with the Census Bureau.
>
> AND REMEMBER, THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS DECIDED NOT TO WORK WITH ACORN ON GATHERING THIS INFORMATION. No Acorn worker should approach you saying he/she is with the Census Bureau. Eventually, Census workers may contact you by telephone, mail, or in person at home. However, the Census Bureau will not contact you by e-mail, so be on the lookout for e-mail scams impersonating the Census. Never click on a link or open any attachments in an e-mail that are supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau.

This was emailed to me by a lawyer and should be read very carefully.

The only way to not be abused by Government employees, is to know your rights.

Please check with your local officials as to the truth of this email.

You are not required to believe this

HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You "DO" need to check into this.

Here is the link to the actual BBB advisory: BBB Alerts Consumers about U.S. Census Workers: Be Cooperative, but Cautious!

Nowhere in the article do they mention ACORN. Now, myself personally, I wouldn't tell ACORN diddly, however that view was not endorsed by the BBB as far as I can see.

The last I read, ACORN was put back on the gov. payroll in Nov. Can someone verify if this is true or false?

Also, wasn't it ACORN who was "painting our doors" with the GPS markings? Maybe they already have the info they need on us. How do we know they are not selling or giving that info to another party? If they are independent of gov. then wouldn't they be free to do *whatever* with that information?

I will answer with the only Constitutional answer that's needed.

"How many people live in this dwelling?"

Anything else gets the door slammed in their face if they get uppity!!
No other information is needed nor legal. It's for setting the amount of representatives in Congress for a certain geographical area. Nothing else!

I urge ALL who read this to contact their representatives and senators (in the US).

Don't take my word/link for it.

Call them.
Email them
Snail mail them

Please confirm I am right or wrong.

PLEASE post what information you found via any method.

this involves me actually answering my door if i see a census person .

of course, for a bit of fun, I could always pull a bill clinton on them.

them: So how many people are living here
me: first we have to clarify what the meaning of "living" is...
