The Lincoln Police Department and the Council on Aging would like to remind residents of all ages to be wary of scams that are already happening related to the Coronavirus public health emergency. These include offers of treatments or vaccines, work at home jobs, or in-demand products like medical and cleaning supplies that may come by phone, email, internet, or messages on social media like Facebook. Remember:
Also, with the potential for checks coming from the US government, scammers will be calling and emailing, saying they are from the government and asking for personal information like Social Security numbers or credit card or bank numbers or claiming they can help you get your payment. The government will never call or email you for these purposes.
In addition, a test for COVID-19 can only be ordered by your physician and obtained at a reputable site such as a hospital. Do not accept tests from anyone who comes to your door, approaches you in a store or other public place, or who calls or emails you or messages you on social media.
If you think you have been the victim of a scam, or you have a question about a communication you have received, call the Lincoln Police Department at (781) 259-8113.
