Defending Against COVID-19 Cyber Scams

 

This message is to warn individuals of possible scams related to COVID-19 virus. Cyber actors may send emails with malicious attachments or links to fraudulent websites to trick victims into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes.

  • Avoid clicking on links in unsolicited emails and be wary of email attachments.
  • Use trusted sites – such as legitimate, government websites – for up-to-date information, fact-based information about COVID-19.
  • Do not reveal personal or financial information in email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information.
  • Verify a charity’s authenticity before making donations. Review the Federal Trade Commission’s page on Charity Scams for more information.
