My brother just received this notice at is apartment complex:

UGENT COMMUNITY NOTICE

Security alert for our residence: Be warned, there is a group going to homes and pretending to be officials from home affairs. They have documents with the letterhead Department of Home Affairs and claim to be confirming that everyone has a valid ID for the u p c o...... Census.

They are robbing homes take note there is no initiative like that from the government. Send this on your neighborhood group chat there are everywhere and they look presentable. Please alert your family and friends.

Er, this is referenced by Snopes. Then again, it wouldn't be the first time somebody saw a fake scam notice and thought, "Hey, there's a good idea..."

I actually just got off the phone with my brother. I was talking to him about something unrelated to this and I just happened to mention it. As it turns out, that was something someone sent to him on Facebook.

I just assumed it was sent to his complex.

I told him to never ever send me anything again that originates from Facebook or any other source unless he specifically lets me know exactly where it came from in the first place.

If you haven't replied to the census, they will come door to door. I filled mine out online the last day of March and I'm still getting mail to fill out the census, so I figure they'll show up at my door at some point.
