Obamacare Website Users Say Site Led Them to Phishing Page

And now there is another problem with the Obamacare rollout: the Washington, D.C., insurance exchange has led customers enrolling to a fraudulent website. Richard Sorian, director of communications, education and outreach for the exchange, claimed that there have only been two reports asserting that the customers have been misled. He explained to The Hill, “It’s one of those phishing expeditions that unfortunately arise when our website center is being frequented by the public. It’s not something internal to our system. We’re investigating to see if we can find out what’s going on.”

Although officials working with the government website have been cautioning since its launch for customers to avoid inputting personal information, such as PIN numbers, the problem is cropping up. Sorian insisted, “We’re taking it seriously, but it’s not a major problem.”

We already know that the Obamacare website is pretty much a flea market for hackers, and is riddled with security holes even the government has been forced to acknowledge.

So the luckless would-be consumer gets hit with a double whammy: First, the government steals your insurance plan, your doctor, and your hospital, and then hackers and crackers steal your identity.

What’s not to like?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
