HUDSON, OH (March 20, 2020) – While people scramble for information during the coronavirus crisis, scammers are using the situation to take advantage of people, often the most vulnerable.

Hang up immediately when people ask for this information.
People are calling and even going door to door offering cures to COVID-19, home testing, and other scams to unsuspecting citizens. As the crisis progresses, scammers will come up with new fake items to sell and other reasons to obtain your sensitive information. Do not fall prey to scammers.
