They do not ask for personal information, they do not ask for your social security number, they do not ask anything but who lived in your house as of April 1st. That's all and that is all the census form asks. It may be that because of the covid thing many of the forms did not get mailed.

The caller said he was from the Census Bureau 2020 and that they wanted to very my information that I had provided. He called me at around 7:30 pm,used my name and gave me my address. Then he asked me questions that I had answered in the Census 2020. He had a foreign accent and didn't read the names properly. So I stayed 1 more minute to see where this was going. When he started asking for more personal information I ended the call. I Googled to see if the phone number was legit from Census.gov and found a post saying it is from Census but then I kept reading and got to this page. I guess it's difficult to say but better to be safe than sorry so I hung up.

I called the number back after looking on Google. I get enough scam calls, so I was leary. However, they confirmed the names of the people living in my house, so they don't get left out or counted more than once. We have a college student in our household and they wanted to make sure that he wasn't counted more than once. That was all, call was done. Took about 3 mins, even though she told me it'd take 7 minutes.

This is definitely legitimate. I googled the number as someone else said and it was legitimate. I called and they only asked for my case # which had been provided in the voicemails I had received. Then they asked to verify the names of the persons I had listed on my census and they said the names first. I do think the purpose of their call to me was to make sure that I had claimed my college student as a permanent resident of my home. Quick call back and no problems. RoboKiller should be reporting this number as legit.

He then begin asking questions about my daughter and her address at school. What does this have to do with anything. I told him I didn't know it. Then he wanted the name of the school. I asked for his name and he gave me his first name. I just don't trust this.

Caller Name: United States Census Bureau

Was getting a couple of calls from this number every week. Since the voicemail was automated (but official-sounding, I might add), I presumed it was a scam using a spoofed number that was the 2020 Census's helpline. After over a month of these calls, I dialed the number back (rather than just tapping the "call back," since the missed call was identified as spam). A representative quickly answered my call and asked for my Census ID and name. She checked and informed me that my case was closed (meaning I filled out the census with no issues). She then put me on hold briefly to check whether there was some underlying problem with my census filing. When she picked back up, she apologized that there was a technical difficulty with the lookup system. The representative politely told me that I was free to call back, but there did not seem to be a need to and hopefully they will take me off their call list. BOTTOM LINE: it is very unlikely that this is a scam call. My call back was odd, but not suspicious (i.e. no attempts to solicit sensitive information). If it is not a scam call, I would recommend the U.S. Census Bureau tell you in their voicemail why they are trying to contact you.

The phone number is listed on the census website and easy to confirm. They did not ask me for information other than to confirm what I had already provided.

I would definitely let this call go to voice mail in case someone is spoofing the caller id, but if they leave a message with an ID# asking you to call this number back, it's legitimate. In my case, they were double checking my survey because I have two kids that are in college, and they needed more info to ensure they weren't counted more than once. Also double checking no one else was living in my home on April 1. They clearly had the information from my submitted census form. Don't take my word for this either. Do your due diligence - you will find this number on official census.gov web sites. You can call another known number for the census, and they will verify this as legitimate. Call your representative, or someone in your local government if you are unsure. But don't just ignore (for one thing, they will continue calling you until you respond :) ). Please take this seriously - there are people in government and on the internet who would like nothing more than for you to write this off as a scam and be under counted in this year's census.

This is a legitmate number for the US Census Bureau. They called to confirm information previously submitted online; they are trying to make sure no one is uncounted or counted more than once.

Caller Name: Census

The census called and left a message to call back to 844-809-7717. I called back and it was legitimate. They didn't ask any personal information, and they already had my census information when I called as I did it on-line earlier this year.

Caller Name: 844-809-7717 (U.S. Census Bureau)

This is not a scam. This is a call from the U.S. Census Bureau asking about the people listed on the census you filled out. They just want to make sure that everyone listed on the census actually lived at your address on April 1, 2020 and don't usually live somewhere else. In my case, I do have a son who was listed on the census who lives on campus when he is at college and on April 1st, he was on campus working as an R.A. when the census workers visited the campus. They just want to make sure people are not counted twice.
