State, feds target scammers
April 1, 2020
The U.S. Attorney Offices in Florida have partnered with the Florida attorney general to crack down on anyone trying to capitalize on the coronavirus pandemic by cheating Florida consumers, especially the state’s vulnerable elders.
Florida’s three top federal prosecutors are now actively collaborating and cooperating with the state’s top prosecutor in a concerted effort to stop scams relating to coronavirus.
Some common scams being reported around the nation include individuals and businesses selling fake cures for coronavirus online.
Citizens are asked to report potential scams to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at http://www.IC3.gov.
