TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Crooks know you have worries about the coronavirus pandemic and are now taking advantage.
As COVID-19 vaccines roll out across the U.S., consumer advocates and Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody have issued warnings of COVID-19 vaccine cons.
Already, there are reports of scheme calls offering a chance to receive an early dose of the Pfizer vaccine for $80. And officials are cracking down.
The FDA is sending out warning letters to companies or individuals.
There are red flags and ways to spot a likely con. First, do your research. Don’t respond to unsolicited emails or calls about the vaccine. Second, ignore calls for immediate action.
If you want a vaccine early, ask your doctor about your eligibility. Don’t buy any vaccines or treatments online.
