[ARCHIVED] Avoid Coronavirus Scams

Marshalltown Police Badge

Leave it to scammers to take advantage of a crisis.

Criminals are peddling bogus COVID-19 cures and protection resources. For example, the FDA warns that scammers are trying to con you into buying a COVID-19 home testing kit. One problem, these kits have not been approved by the FDA and are just another scam meant to trick you out of your hard earned money. Don’t fall for these bogus efforts to steal your money and your personal information.

Check out the Federal Trade Commission website for more information related to COVID-19 scams.
