Notice: Watch Out for Coronavirus Scams

Posted on 3/12/2020 11:36:33 AM

Scammers are taking advantage of the fear and uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 Coronavirus. Scams to beware of include:

  • Promotion of products that claim to prevent, treat, or cure the coronavirus.
  • Requests for money for fraudulent charities. If you get a request for donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.
  • Misinformation. Beware of emails and social media postings that claim to be from experts. For the most up-to-date information visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
  • Phishing. A number of phishing scams related to the virus are being circulated. The attachments or links may contain malware.
