Beware of Coronavirus Scams

Scam artists are using the Coronavirus Emergency to get older adults' personal identity information and steal money. Beware of phone calls, emails or visitors at your door who can't provide verifiable identification and who ask for your personal information, including your name, age, Social Security number or bank information. They may falsely claim they represent a special government program with services for seniors, but have no connection to any government agency.
