Here are some tips to help you keep the scammers at bay:
• Hang up on robocalls. Don’t press any numbers. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything
• Ignore online offers for vaccinations and home test kits.
• Fact-check information. Scammers, and sometimes well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been verified.
• Know who you’re buying from. Online sellers may claim to have in-demand products, like cleaning, household, and health and medical supplies when, in fact, they don’t.
• Don’t respond to texts and emails about checks from the government. Anyone who tells you they can get you the money now is a scammer.
• Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.
• Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus.
• Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Don’t let anyone rush you into making a donation.
• There have been reports about scammers pretending to be government workers calling about stimulus checks. The government will not call, text, or email regarding any type of check or payment.
