️ COVID-19 Scam Alert

Scammers are hard at working coming up with new ways to take your money! Please be aware and alert for various active scams.

4. Hang up on robo-calls. Scammers are using illegal robo-calls to pitch everything from low-priced health insurance to work-at-home schemes.
5. Watch for e-mails claiming to be from the CDC or World Health Organization (WHO) Use sites like coronavirus.gov and usa.gov/coronavirus to get the latest information. Please don’t click on links from sources you don’t know.
6. Do your homework when it comes to donations. Never donate in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money.
