Census deadline prompts scam warning

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Today is the deadline for getting your 2010 Census forms in the mail.

But this reminder also comes with a warning.

Scam artists have distributed bogus forms across the nation, in hopes of stealing valuable personal information.

In some cases, the criminals switched the real form with the fake one, so no one realizes the crime until it's too late.

This has officials worried that people will be scared away from filling out the important forms.
