New York State Office for the Aging Reminds New Yorkers to Remain Vigilant Against COVID-19 Scams
"New York State Office for the Aging (NYSOFA) reminds New Yorkers of all ages to stay aware of scams surrounding the
novel coronavirus. Scams have become even more sophisticated in recent years.
Scammers are using email, text messages, social media, and the telephone to steal and defraud.
Phishing and supply scams
Contact tracing scams
Economic relief scams
Government grant scams
Investment scams disguised as “research reports”
What to Do if You Have Been Scammed
Report it. Reporting scams to law enforcement is important to help establish accurate statistics on how many people have been affected, which determines how many resources the FBI and other law enforcement will devote to breaking up fraud rings."
