Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel wants to ensure Michiganders don’t fall for fake advertisements or too-good-to-be-true treatments related to COVID-19.
Her Consumer Alert covers a wide range of scams that are circulating right now.
In her latest Consumer Protection video, Nessel shares what to do to avoid being scammed by people claiming to have a treatment for COVID-19 or the vaccine.
Last month, the attorney general told people to avoid vaccine survey scams offering a reward in exchange for personal information.
Additionally, it’s important to always remember:
- be suspicious of any product that claims to treat COVID;
- never purchase so-called treatment over the internet;
- if you get a text, email, or phone call from someone you don’t know about a vaccine or treatment, don’t respond or send your personal information; and
- if you’re looking for the COVID-19 vaccine, visit your doctor, a trusted pharmacy, or your local health department for your shots.
Today’s Consumer Protection video is part of a series of informative and humorous videos focused on protecting Michiganders.
