Concord, NH – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald urges people in New Hampshire to be on the alert for charitable giving and consumer product scams related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Scammers may take advantage of fears related to COVID-19 outbreak by selling bogus "treatment" and "prevention" products, establishing fake charities, and sending seemingly legitimate emails with malicious links or attachments.
Be careful about opening emails claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or from others claiming to have information about COVID-19. Clicking on links or attachments could cause a computer virus to infect your device.
To report a charitable giving scam, contact the Charitable Trusts Unit:
To report a business-related scam, contact the Consumer Protection Hotline:
