Avoid COVID-19 Scams

Excerpt from the City of Woodburn Weekly E-Blast:

Be aware there are many COVID-19 scammers taking advantage of people. Examples of scams include:
Businesses offering vaccines, testing kits, and treatment.
Websites offering stimulus checks reimbursement.
Businesses guaranteeing delivery of out-of-stock medical supplies.
Businesses offering investment opportunities.
Fake charities asking for donations.
Scammers posing as family members asking for money for treatment.

DO NOT:
Provide anyone with your personal information.
Send any money to an unknown person/business.
Click on unknown links, visit unknown websites or click on pop-ups while online. This could cause a virus to be uploaded to your computer or device.

If you believe you have been a victim of a scam or have concerns about a scam please contact the Oregon Department of Justice Consumer Protection Hotline at:1-877-877-9392


And good advice from WEG’s Bugle Blast:
