COVID-19 Phishing Scheme
The FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) has warned of a phishing campaign delivering spam that uses fake government economic stimulus checks as bait to steal personal information from potential victims.

Be on the lookout for phishing emails asking to verify personal information in order to receive an economic stimulus check from the government, the alert said. Government agencies are not sending unsolicited emails seeking private information in order to send money.

Similar campaigns might ask potential victims for donations to various charities, promise general financial relief and airline carrier refunds, as well as try to push fake COVID-19 cures, vaccines and testing kits.

Other active phishing attacks are taking advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to infect victims with malware and harvest their personal information through spam impersonating the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other similar organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO).

The FBI adds that scammers are trying to sell products claiming to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure the COVID-19 disease, as well counterfeit sanitizing products and personal protective equipment, including but not limited to N95 respirator masks, gloves, protective gowns, goggles and full-face shields. 

Possible COVID-19-themed scams and attacks as highlighted by U.S. Attorney Andrew Murray include:

  • Individuals or businesses selling fake cures for COVID-19
  • Online offers for vaccinations and test kits
  • Phishing emails or texts from entities posing as the World Health Organization (WHO) or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • Malware inserted in mobile apps designed to track the spread of COVID-19 that can steal information stored on devices
  • Malicious COVID-19 websites and apps that can gain and lock access to devices until a ransom payment is made
  • Solicitations for donations to fake charities or crowdfunding sites

To report COVID-19 Fraud, contact the Disaster Fraud Hotline 866-720-5721 or email disaster@leo.gov. You can find more information on the National Center for Disaster Fraud webpage.

Caller ID Spoofing
Please be aware of spoofing scams in which a caller intentionally falsifies or disguises a caller ID to appear as someone they are not. Scammers may act or say they are with a legitimate organization, including as a representative of a financial institution, to get you to respond with personal information they can then use to engage in fraudulent activity such as stealing your identity or money.

First National Bank will never call, email or text you to request personal information such as Personal Identification Numbers (PIN numbers) or passwords. For additional information, visit the FCC’s websiteRedirect icon for more information. 

Use caution at all times and never answer calls from unknown numbers, respond to questions or provide personal information of any kind. If you suspect the call might be a spoofing scam, hang up immediately and call the company or government agency the caller claimed to represent to verify the authenticity of the call/request.
