Unfortunately, there are those out there who are preying on the circumstances created by COVID-19 in order to take advantage of others. One of the ways they are doing this is through the use of phony and potentially malicious websites and scam emails.
Forbes released an article specifically warning against the following domains and websites:
Experts say you should avoid visiting these websites, and you should take extra precautions if you see any emails linking out to or coming from one of these domains.
If you receive an unsolicited or unfamiliar email, don’t click on any links in the email and don’t open any attachments. Instead, close the email and delete it.
Remember, if you believe you’ve been the victim of a COVID-19 fraud scheme, please contact the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the COVID19 Fraud Coordinator (see the DOJ link here), or your state or local authorities.
