Since the pandemic began, Rob Schroader has seen internet scams related to COVID-19. These include fake contact tracers, offers for vaccinations and home test kits, and emails claiming to be from the CDC or Who.
Rob says to be aware of these three scamming tactics.
Fake Contact Tracers – They ask for money for contact tracing. They ask for SSN or financial information. They send links to malware through text or email.
Fake Vaccinations and Home Test Kits – There are no vaccinations or home test kits. Anyone claiming to have one is a scam.
Fake CDC/Who Emails – Misinformation is being spread through emails claiming to be from the CDC or Who. Go directly to coronavirus.gov or usa.gov/coronavirus to get the latest from the CDC. Do not click on links to these sites from emails, texts, or internet searches.
