 Neighbourhood Watch and COVID-19     18 March 2020

We are concerned about scams and fraud that may arise as people take advantage of the crisis and will continue to gather insights into coronavirus COVID-19 scams and crimes. We are aware of the following scams which we are sharing so you can inform anyone that you know who might be at risk:
• Impersonating Red Cross workers and health authorities - door-to-door knocking claiming to be carrying out mandatory testing for coronavirus as an excuse to enter a home and carry out robberies
- Always ask for ID before letting someone into your home
• Impersonating willing shoppers – door-to-door knocking offering help with shopping but then instead steal the money
- Ideally link up with verified volunteer groups for food delivery or support. Contact your
council if unsure.
• Cybercrime - there are a number of people sending emails with false test results plus information regarding coronavirus via a link. That link creates a virus on your computer. - If you are unsure, do not open links within an email, visit official websites instead.
