The Census Scam? Come On Newspapers… Get it Right

So in today’s Hawaii Tribune, they had an article that was a reprint from the Honolulu Advertiser and it basically starts out on the front page like this:

Ok... so were warned!

But then it goes on to say that you can identify Official Census workers because they will have a hand held device!

Hand Held Devices??? WTF?

I can tell you that none of the Enumerators will have hand held devices.  In fact, we haven’t used them in almost a year now!

So what this article does… is pretty much endangers those real census workers out there.

I do hope a retraction is made soon!

  1. Our census work was out yesterday, and it was obvious she was a legit census worker. She had no hand held device, just paper and pencil. =)
