Coronavirus Scams - Great advise from the Arlington PD

It has been brought to our attention that scammers have already begun trying to take advantage of people regarding the coronaviris (COVID-19) pandemic. Here is some information to remember and how to avoid coronavirus scams: •Do not click on links on your phone or computer from sources you do not know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device. •Watch for emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or experts saying they have information about the virus. For the most up-to-date information about the Coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). •Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There currently are no vaccines, pills, potions, lotions, lozenges or other prescription or over-the-counter products available to treat or cure Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) — online or in stores. •Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether through charities or crowdfunding sites. Do not let anyone rush you into making a donation. If someone wants donations in cash, by gift card, or by wiring money, do not do it! Stay vigilant everyone!
