Avoiding COVID-19 Scams

Unfortunately, there are bad actors looking to take advantage of this pandemic to scam vulnerable citizens. Here are some resources from the Federal Trade Commission about how to avoid common COVID-19 releated scames.
  • Learn how to tell the difference between a real contact tracer and a scammer. Legitimate tracers need health information, not money or personal financial information.
  • Don’t respond to texts, emails or calls about checks from the government. Here’s what you need to know.
  • Ignore offers for vaccinations and home test kits. Scammers are selling products to treat or prevent COVID-19 without proof that they work.
  • Be wary of ads for test kits. Most test kits being advertised have not been approved by the FDA, and aren’t necessarily accurate.
  • Hang up on robocalls. Scammers are using illegal robocalls to pitch everything from low-priced health insurance to work-at-home schemes

The State of Michigan is collecting and managing financial, material and in-kind donations to be used to meet the most pressing needs of Michigan residents during the COVID-19 Health Emergency.

Michigan COVID-19 Volunteers

The State of Michigan has launched a new volunteer website, www.michigan.gov/fightcovid19, where trained medical professionals can register to serve their fellow Michiganders by assisting hospitals in fighting COVID-19. Other state residents also can use the site to find out how they can help in their local communities, give blood, donate money or needed medical supplies, or assist public health officials in tracking infections.
