But the art of the scam hasn't changed. These three questions can help you spot scammers.

Slow down

Vaccine rollout is being handled by state agencies. No legitimate agency will offer you the ability to "jump the line."

Spot check

Refer to websites like the CDC and HHS for the most up-to-date information about Covid-19 vaccine distribution and developments.

Stop! Don’t send $$

You won't need to worry about the cost of the vaccine for COVID-19. If you're asked to pay, especially ahead of time, don't. If you get a bill in error, call your provider. Refer to HHS

Use the rules whether for questions about Covid-19 or you get a hot deal for merchandise. Keep these where you can check yourself often.

Slow it down — Scammers often create a sense of urgency so that they can bypass your better instincts. Take your time and ask questions to avoid being rushed (...) .

Spot check — (...) Double check the details you’re getting. If you get an unexpected phone call, hang up. Then look up the bank, agency or organization (...) and get in touch directly.

Stop! Don't send — No reputable person or agency will ever demand payment on the spot. (...) if you think the payment feels fishy, it probably is.

Scams don‘t happen In a vacuum. If your emotions are I charge of your reasoning, you become more susceptible.

Knowing how we become susceptible to scammers can give you the edge. Nothing teaches humility than being scammed. Even educated and smart people become susceptible, sometimes.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
