Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald urges Granite Staters to be on the alert for charitable giving and consumer product scams related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Scammers may take advantage of fears related to COVID-19 outbreak by selling bogus “treatment” and “prevention” products, establishing fake charities, and sending seemingly legitimate emails with malicious links or attachments.
Be Careful When Making Charitable Donations
Beware of False Claims and Deceptive Marketing
Be on the Lookout for Phony CDC Emails
Be careful about opening emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or from others claiming to have information about COVID-19. Clicking on links or attachments could cause a computer virus to infect your device.
