PHOENIX - The recent Obama Affordable Care Act decision has already led to scam artists taking advantage of unsuspecting consumers.
According to a news release, Attorney General Tom Horne has issued a warning regarding the scams that have taken place.
The Federal Trade Commission said that victims will get a call from someone claiming to be with the government.
They will then ask about personal information, bank routing numbers, credit card information, Social Security numbers and more.
"No government program, including the Obama health care plan, requires consumers to give personal information over the phone," Horne said in a news release. "In fact, if you receive a call like this you should hang up immediately because it is a scam."
If you believe you have been a victim to this type of fraud, you can report your case online.
