Be on the Watch for Covid Scams

There are many warnings out that scammers are out in full force taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reports that Americans have lost almost $13 million in COVID-19 related scams so far. Unfortunately that number will likely increase. 

Some important tips to be sure to follow during this time:

  • Watch for phishing emails or websites asking for personal or financial information.
  • Ask questions if you receive a suspicious phone call
  • When dealing with stimulus checks, be sure to only communicate with the IRS if needed. Nothing needs to be done on your end so be sure to not sign up for anything.

For more information on the current scams, please visit https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/scam-alerts. To report a scam, visit ftc.gov/complaint

Here is a helpful document with other tips and scam information to protect yourself from some known scams.
