COVID-19 Scam Text Messages

Many have reported receiving text messages related to being exposed to COVID-19. The messages have been reported to say:  “Someone who came in contact with you has tested positive or has shown symptoms for COVID-19.” They then recommend you get tested for COVID 19. The link is not from an official organization and is a phishing attempt to get your personal information.

The Federal Trade Commission says they have received more than 25,000 complaints about COVID-19 fraud since the beginning of this year. Remember to always go to a trusted source for information about COVID 19.
