Identifying Coronavirus Scams

The creators of scams are constantly looking for new ways to confuse and trick people into giving them money or their personal information. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, there seems to be multiple new scams being created each day. Some of these are very sophisticated and can be difficult to identify as scams. In order to keep people informed, The Federal Trade Commission has created a website dedicated to helping people identify, report, and avoid coronavirus scams. You can also sign up to receive alerts about new scams and ways to protect yourself. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau also has valuable information on how to protect your finances during the pandemic, avoid scams, and apply for housing assistance. If you are in need of assistance, you can also find legitimate coronavirus assistance programs on the website.
