โœด๏ธPROTECT YOURSELF & BE AWARE of COVID-19 Frauds & Scamsโœด๏ธ

Because of who you are & what we are, we want to help you. Members of the BOAA have reached out as they have recently been affected by frauds & scams such as the ones below. We urge you to protect yourself and be aware of:

๐ŸšซRandom lottery giveaways for COVID-19 – or any links associated with “winnings”
๐ŸšซSpoofed government, healthcare or research information
๐ŸšซUnsolicited calls, emails and texts giving medical advice or requesting urgent action or payment
๐ŸšซUnauthorized or fraudulent charities requesting money for victims, products or research – donโ€™t be pressured into making a donation & always verify that a charity is registered
๐ŸšซHigh-priced or low-quality products purchased in bulk by consumers and resold for profit – these items may be expired and/or dangerous to your health
๐ŸšซQuestionable offers, such as: miracle cures, herbal remedies, vaccinations, faster testing
๐ŸšซFake and deceptive online ads, including: cleaning products, hand sanitizers, other items in high demand

๐ŸšซRed Cross (and other known charities) offering free medical products, like masks, for a donation.
๐ŸšซGovernment departments sending out COVID-19 themed phishing emails, tricking you into opening malicious attachments and/or revealing sensitive personal and financial details.
๐ŸšซFinancial advisors pressuring people to invest in hot new stocks related to COVID-19 and/or offering financial aid/loads to help you get through the shut downs.
