November 4, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
It seems that criminal scammers are everywhere – on your phone, online, in your email and text messages, and even at your door. The pandemic has emboldened them to go after stimulus checks, sell nonexistent but in-demand products, spread fake offers for treatments, and file for unemployment using stolen identities. But we’ve seen a remarkable spike in all scams – not just those related to COVID-19.
