Avoid Coronavirus Scams

Phishing

Cyber criminals are exploiting the Coronavirus through the wide distribution of mass emails posing as legitimate medical and or health organizations. In one particular instance,victims have received an email purporting to be from a medical/health organization that included attachments supposedly containing pertinent information regarding the Coronavirus. This lead to either unsuspecting victims opening the attachment causing malware to infect their system, or prompting the victim to enter their email login credentials to access the information resulting in harvested login credentials.

 

Social Engineering

Another emerging fraud scheme exploiting the Coronavirus is using social engineering tactics through legitimate social mediawebsites seeking donations for charitable causes related to the virus. Criminals are exploiting the charitable spirit of individuals, seeking donations to fraudulent causes surrounding the Coronavirus.

 

Non-Delivery Scams

Criminal actors advertise as an in-demand medical supply company that sells medical supplies that can be used to prevent/protect against the Coronavirus. The criminal enterprise will demand upfront payment or initial deposits then abscond with the funds and never complete delivery of the ordered products.

 

Fraudulent Coronavirus Treatments

 There are companies preying on consumers by promoting products withfraudulent prevention and treatment claims. The companies’ products include teas, essential oils, and colloidal silver. The FTC says the companies have no evidence to back up their claims — as required by law. The FDA says there are no approved vaccines, drugs or investigational products currently available to treat or prevent the virus.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) News

Hands being washed

Dear CorePlus Members,

As your community Credit Union, the health and wellbeing of our members and employees will always be our top priority.

As the coronavirus continues to spread, we encourage all of you to stay aware of the latest information on the COVID-19 outbreak, available on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website and through your public health authority.

The CDC recommends the following to prevent the spread of the virus;

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
