We’ve been hearing about a new kind of COVID-19 scam….survey scams.
Remember, if you come across a survey:
- Legitimate surveys won’t offer money, gifts or any incentive to take them.
- Legitimate surveys won’t have urgency such as, “You must take this survey in the next hour or it will expire.”
- Check links by hovering over them. If they seem long and suspicious, don’t click on them.
- Check logos, language and phone numbers. If anything seems “doctored” or doesn’t match what you see on a legitimate vaccine provider site, don’t click on any of the links.
If you come across such scams or other forms COVID scams or Medicare fraud, report it to our California Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) at 1-855-613-7080. You can also learn about current common scams by visiting our Fraud Alerts page.
