Covid 19 Scams

Alert message sent 21/03/2020 08:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police


Covid-19 continues to remain a very current concern and is causing
angst for many people in itself. We know fraudsters use fear tactics
to try to manipulate people, they may also offer false promise of
‘vaccine’ and ‘cure’. While the situation continues, criminals are
exploiting this situation to gain opportunity during these challenging
times. Scams we see are emerging as follows:
Top Scams:
Please be aware of these from any source - phone, door, email, text, and social
media:
“I have the cure, don’t tell anyone, I can let you have it for £5,000”
“Your Paper money in the bank has been handled by Covid-19 infected staff –
move it to this account for safety………”
Please do not open, respond or pay ransoms
