US Attorney’s office warns of scams

In these unprecedented times, it’s important to know that the Department of Justice remains vigilant and is looking out for all Americans. COVID 19 phony scams are out there, from promises of fake cures to fake mobile APPs that lock your phones and demand ransom. And people or businesses who illegally hoard scarce medical supplies for their own financial benefit.

Protecting our elderly during this crisis is of vital importance, as many will work harder to deceive them in these uncertain times. The U.S. Attorney’s Office will prosecute those who prey upon Americans during this pandemic.

Call 866-720-5721 to report COVID-19 fraud, hoarding, and other scams. We are all in this fight together. And together we will win.
