U.S. Attorney’s Office warning of COVID-19 fraud schemes


The United States Attorney’s Office is warning the public to be aware of fraud schemes seeking to exploit the COVID-19 crisis.

Scammers have already devised several methods, including fraudulent websites, contacting people by phone and email, and posting disinformation on social media platforms. Scams involve treatment schemes, fake charities, even people pretending to represent doctors or hospitals demanding payment for services to relatives.
