Scammers are working overtime to take advantage of COVID-19 vaccine worries. While it's a new context, the three golden rules still work as well as ever.
Vaccine rollout is being handled by state agencies. No legitimate agency will offer you the ability to "jump the line."
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
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.
