COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) — State officials in Ohio are warning of new scams related to the nation’s new health care law.

Attorney General Mike DeWine warned that scammers are calling homeowners claiming to be a rep with the Affordable Care Act, also know as Obamacare.

He warned to guard personal information and never pay upfront fees. Also, to watch out for phony websites.

Open enrollment for the federally-run health insurance exchange in Ohio runs through next March.

Dewine urges consumers to report any suspicious activity to his office.
