Coronavirus (COVID-19) Fraud Schemes

Fraudsters frequently target vulnerable individuals during difficult times. Sadly, it comes as no surprise that scammers have already devised numerous methods for defrauding people in connection with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Scammers are setting up websites, contacting people by phone and email, and posting disinformation on social media platforms.  The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) has provided a list of common coronavirus-related scams as well as ways you can protect yourself from fraud.  Click below to learn more.
