Protect yourself from COVID-19 scams.

Red flags for COVID-19 scams:

Beware of any selling products claiming they can prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19. Currently, there is not a cure or a vaccine for COVID-19.

Please visit the Federal Trade Commission’s Coronavirus Scam Tips for tips about how to recognize potential scams, as well as Homeland Security’s Red Flag guidance to recognize, protect, and report COVID-19 related fraud. This valuable information can keep you aware of the dangers of scams.

If you suspect a COVID-19 fraud issue, report it to COVID19FRAUD@DHS.GOV.
