Tips to Prevent COVID-19 Scams 

--Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There are no products proven to treat or prevent COVID-19 at this time.

--Be wary of ads for test kits. The FDA just announced approval for one home test kit, which requires a doctor’s order. But most test kits being advertised have not been approved by the FDA, and aren’t necessarily accurate.

--Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from low-priced health insurance to work-at-home schemes.

--Watch for emails claiming to be from the CDC or WHO. Use sites like and to get the latest information. And don’t click on links from sources you don’t know.
