Florida Attorney General Warns Of COVID-19 Contact Tracing Call Scams | #coronavirus | #scams | #covid19


Originally published on June 22, 2020 5:41 pm

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is warning Floridians of scammers trying to impersonate health officials. Moody says the calls are going out from people pretending to be contact tracers to get personal details from victims. She’s advising people to verify that contact tracing calls are coming from county health departments.

“Know that a legitimate contact tracer will never ask for your birthdate; they already have this information and will simply ask for confirmation. Contact tracers will never ask for your social security number or banking information. They also will never reveal the identity of the COVID-19 positive person you may have had contact with.” Moody says.

When someone tests positive for COVID-19, health workers try to call people who have been near that infected person. It’s called contact tracing, and the CDC reports it’s a key strategy in preventing the coronavirus from spreading.
