    Affordable Care Act Scam named Better Business Bureau’s 2013 ‘Scam of the Year’

    The Better Business Bureau announced its “Top 10 Scams of 2013.” Leading the pack, believe it or not, was the Affordable Care Act Scam, which most would refer to as the Obamacare scam.

    As much as he may want to differ, CBS late night host David Letterman didn’t invent the idea of a “top 10 list” — it’s been around for a long time, and that includes the 102 year-old Better Business Bureau, which has published a top 10 scam report for years.

    “Scammers used the uncertainty of Obamacare to trick Americans into sharing personal information. They call victims and offer new insurance or Medicare cards if they provide personal information,” according to its website.

    The remaining nine are, as Houston ABC-13 News reported this week:

    Medical Alert Scam – This scam targeted seniors and caretakers with the promise of a free medical alert system. Scammers told victims their family members had already paid for it and they would just need to provide their bank account or credit information for verification.

    Auction Reseller Scam – Scammers used Ebay and PayPal to lure in their victims. They figured out a way to have sellers mail the goods without receiving payment. The sellers receive an email that looks like it is from PayPal, but it was really just a fake. The BBB says always confirm payments in your Ebay and PayPal accounts before shipping goods, especially overseas.

    What’s wrong with many of those work-at-home job offers you see advertised? We found a large number of them are scams that will cost you more than you will ever make. For just $6,000 and a one day course, job seekers were told they could learn to do medical billing working from home and earn big bucks.

    “They would be told there would be no need to market the services the demand was so great for medical billing that they wouldnt even need to knock on doctors doors, doctors would be seek them out,” says Terrence Sullivan, a U.S. Postal Inspector.

    The company, lured in victims by telling them they could earn $1,200 a month and that EDI would help them find clients.

    “EDI would provide them with a couple of firms or doctors offices or chiropractors or medical laboratories that would be in their area,” says Sullivan.

    The whole thing was a scam.

    “In this particular case it was always a fraud. There was no demand for the medical billing service they were offering,” says Sullivan.

    Victims lost the $6,000 fee they paid for the program as well as money spent flying to a one day training session in Detroit.

    In all: 3,500 victims and more than $17 million dollars in losses.

    Postal inspectors say the majority of people who signed up for the course never found a single client, never processed a single claim and never made a dime.

    Inspectors say be wary of work-at-home opportunities.
