    • Tips to Help Protect You from Fraud & Scams

      Stay safe by using these Federal Trade Commission tips to avoid COVID-19 scams.

      • 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 that they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
      • Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores.
      • Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Don’t let anyone rush you into making a donation. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, don’t do it.

      Please remember it’s very important to never give your personal information in response to a phone call, email, or text.  For more information on how to protect yourself from being scammed, visit www.consumer.ftc.gov.
