COVID-19 FRAUD SCHEMES
It is important to remain diligent in protecting yourself from fraud. Unfortunately, several fraud schemes have developed to take advantage of people during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Health and Human Service Office of the Inspector General offers some guidance about COVID-19 testing fraud. Other kinds of fraud include solicitors (on the phone or in person) selling fake water filters, hand sanitizer, test kits, do-it-yourself or homemade ventilators, and government bailout deposits. If you suspect COVID-19 fraud, contact National Center for Disaster Fraud Hotline (866) 720-5721 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you suspect any fraudulent door-to-door solicitations around town, please file a report with the Cheverly Police Department by calling 911.
