Scammers and cyber-criminals may try to take advantage of your concerns related to COVID-19. They may offer you fake products, medical advice, create fake charities, or compel you to click a fraudulent link to gain access to your device.
Here’s just two recommendations:
- Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know. They could download viruses onto your computer or device.
- Ignore online offers for vaccinations. There currently are none.
