Safeguarding your personal and financial information is crucial to preventing fraud. We would like to make you aware of new scams—some related to COVID-19—that have recently affected our communities. The scammers have targeted the elderly, those applying for and receiving unemployment benefits, those seeking information on the coronavirus, and others.
A scammer calls elderly residents claiming to be their grandchild or their grandchild’s lawyer; they proceed to tell fake stories to ask for money (e.g. the scammer claims the grandchild is in jail and needs bail money).
Bogus unemployment claims have been filed with stolen personal information.
There are many bogus claims of treatment, fake charities, undelivered goods, fake emails, texts, and phishing, and more.
Please be vigilant about sharing your personal information. For more information on how to protect yourself against fraud. Learn more about fraud and scams in our Financial Protection.
