2020 – 04/06 – Fake COVID-19 treatments and other new fraud schemes

As a business owner, you may be struggling to stay solvent during the COVID-19 pandemic. The last thing you need is to fall for a fraud scam and incur additional financial losses. Be wary of fake suppliers who may cold call offering items you can’t find elsewhere, or slick-looking websites that may take your money and never ship the goods. Crooks selling defective products, including counterfeit face masks and hand sanitizer, is another threat. And as Americans stay home and rely on apps for everything from food delivery to online learning, payment fraud is expected to surge. Ensure your IT security is up to the challenge.
