State Flags COVID Vaccine Scams

The state of Connecticut is warning residents to watch out for scams related to COVID-19 vaccines. Connecticut officials say they’ve recently learned of a scheme in which fraudsters sent a fake survey offering rewards for opinions about the vaccine. But, to get the reward, consumers have to give their credit card information. It’s one of three scams the state is flagging. Officials say that residents should be on alert, that they shouldn’t pay anything to sign up for the vaccine, and that they should beware of unsolicited ads or texts related to the vaccine.
