Avoid Corona-virus Scams
by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
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 robo-calls to pitch everything from Corona-virus treatment scams to work-at-home schemes. The recording might say that pressing a number will let you speak to a live operator or remove you from their call list, but it might lead to more robocalls, instead.
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.
