Plan for COVID-19 scams to continue throughout the pandemic

As of June 25th, 2020, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), had logged nearly 111,000 consumer complaints related to COVID-19 and stimulus payments, two-thirds of them involving fraud or identity theft.

Victims have reported losing $72.2 million, with a median loss of $281.

Here are some types of coronavirus scams to continue to watch out for while the pandemic continues:

In-demand products and/or bogus cures

Currently, millions of vaccines are being distributed daily at verified vaccination sites across  the U.S..  However, beware of fraudsters who run scams like fake Vaccine Verification cards.

Also beware of those selling or offering in-demand supplies such as surgical masks, test kits and household cleaners, often in robocalls, texts or social media ads.

Financial phonies

Beware of calls or emails, purportedly from government agencies, that use the term “stimulus” (the official term is “economic-impact payment”) and ask you to sign over a check or provide personal information like your Social Security number.

If you own a small business, beware of promises of quick capital. With unemployment and economic anxiety rising, crooks have been seen impersonating banks and lenders to offer fake help with bills, credit card debt.

Beware of fraudsters touting investments in companies with products that supposedly can prevent, detect or cure COVID-19. Do your research. This type of fraud involves con artists that have already bought the stocks in order to inflate the price. Then, they dump the stock, saddling legitimate investors with big losses.

Phishing scams

Beware of emails or texts supposedly from contact tracers warning you that you’ve been exposed to someone with COVID-19. These messages include a link that, if clicked, downloads malware to your device. (Messages from actual contact tracers working for public health agencies will not include a link, or ask you for money or personal data.)

Make sure you visit genuine health authorities’ websites. Scammers have been found running fake CDC and WHO websites.  A good place to start is your State or County Health Department. https://www.usa.gov/state-health ; https://www.usa.gov/local-governments
