MUPD Warns of Possible COVID-19 Scams

The University of Missouri Police Department is warning of potential scams related to COVID-19.

In a press release yesterday (Tuesday) the department says to be on the lookout for testing scams that involve fake at-home test kits or fraudulent door-to-door tests.

Treatment scams that involve fake cures, vaccines or other unproven treatments for the coronavirus.

Also investment scams that involve fake stocks or products claiming to offer investment opportunities for COVID-19 treatments.

The MU Police Department says they have not received any reports of scams yet and people should keep in mind if an offer sounds too good to be true it probably is.
