FBI warns of potential COVID-19 vaccine scams



The FBI is warning that scammers may be lurking to bilk consumers with fake COVID-19 vaccine schemes.

Among the things to watch for:

  • You’re asked to pay out-of-pocket for a vaccine (the shots are free)
  • You’re asked to pay for early access or to put your name on a waiting list.
  • Advertisements for vaccines through social media platforms, email, telephone calls, online or from unsolicited or unknown sources
  • “Marketers” offering to sell or ship doses of the vaccine for payment

The FBI urges you to protect yourself by never giving out your personal information to unknown sources.
