(KTNV) -- With one month until health care enrollment beings under the Affordable Care Act, the Better Business Bureau is warning the public about possible scams.
As deadlines approach, scammers are claiming "it's the law" and try scaring you into revealing personal information.
The BBB says scammers are posing as government employees and asking for Social Security numbers and bank account numbers to sign them up for health plans. You're urged to ignore these calls and emails.
The BBB also says the health exchanges, including the Small Business Health Options Program and Permian Basin Employer Health Plan Cooperative, do not open for business until October first, so brokers cannot technically sell plans until then.
