Beware of COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

COVID-19 scams are everywhere.
Beware of scammers promising early access to COVID-19 vaccines.

Fear has a way of making people do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do.

The COVID-19 panic has resulted in a spate of scams exploiting and targeting the fearful – especially older Americans. First it was white-jacketed people knocking on doors promising delivery of COVID test kits. Now we’ll likely see people promising the undereducated, the isolated, and the unwary early delivery of the COVID vaccine – for a small fee, of course. Or perhaps they’ll just ask for a bit of personal information, such as your date of birth, social security number, etc. You know – to “verify” your identity or eligibility for this special deal.

This article is from a TX news outlet, but the advice applies to everyone:

  • Research carefully,
  • Check with your doctor,
  • Ignore calls for immediate action, and
  • Double-check the link (hover over it to see the address) before opening it.

Additionally, report any suspected scams to family members, neighborhood social media pages, and your state Attorney General.

Your spouse doesn’t share your love for guns, and you fear your collection could be sold for almost nothing – or even destroyed – instead of being passed on to your children or others who share your passion.
