AARP warns of COVID-19 vaccine scams

Good Day

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Scammers are looking for ways to steal money and personal information from older Americans seeking their COVID-19 vaccines, according to AARP.

AARP said scammers lure in targets with an offer to skip the line for quicker access to the COVID-19 vaccine for free. People are called or sent a fake event registration link and offered a chance to schedule a vaccine appointment for a fee or are asked for their Medicare or Social Security number in order to sign up.
