That's One Hot Hotline! Callers With Census Questions Mistakenly Sent to Sex Chat Line

advertisement

Plenty of city and state agencies have hotlines set up to help people with a variety of issues. The New York Consumer Protection Board didn't plan on advertising this hotline. The number the agency mistakenly adversised sent callers wanting information on Census scams to a phone sext chat line.

Once the mistake was realized, the number was taken off the site. The CPB issued an apology for the confusion and inconvenience. At least one local newspaper published the sex chat number by mistake but says it hasn't gotten any calls complaining about the wrong number.
