Beware Of The Scams!

on Thursday, 16 April 2020 in Covid-19 Information Hub

On Monday, April 13, we learned that the Justice Department was bringing charges against a broker who claimed to have access to 39 million N-95 masks and was offering to sell them for $750 million, but the masks did not exist.

CNBC reported that Americans have already lost $13 million to fraud.

Please be wary of any:

  • Unsolicited offers to apply for government funded loans through the CARES Act;
  • Unsolicited offers to help obtain government tax rebate or stimulus check;
  • Sell any supplies which are in short supply such as N-95 masks, sanitizer, or PPE;
  • Donate to newly funded charities – research the company or charity before giving;
  • Help managing retirement accounts in this time of stock markets swings;
  • Newly created website offering services or cures;
  • Unsolicited calls, texts, or phishing emails.
