Scammers often take advantage of disruptions like the Coronavirus to perpetrate their schemes. Lisa Arnold, administrator of the Branson Senior Center, reminds area seniors to remain vigilant and not be taken in by the new crop of scams.
A release from the Missouri Senior Medicare Patrol warns that scammers often use fear-based tactics to convince people to buy their purported vaccines or cures. Be especially suspicious of anyone going door-to-door offering free virus testing, supplies, or treatments.
As always, everyone should remember to follow the instructions of your state and local government for actions we should take in response to Covid-19.
