COVID-19 and Scams

As the pandemic progresses and the vaccine offers the promise of better days, scammers are doing what they always do – using the headlines to steal money and personal information from anyone they can victimize. Some new scams focus on the vaccine and pandemic, while others that seem like the “oldest trick in the book” have new power in our ongoing crisis. The steps for all of us to guard against financial loss for ourselves and loved ones remain the same, but may require new vigilance while we face the pandemic’s challenges. We welcome Jay Haapala from the AAARP-MN Fraudwatch Network. (1 CEU will be offered)
