Covid-19 has reached nearly every continent on Earth. While doctors and researchers scramble to research the novel virus, others are attempting to profit off the pandemic and the current lack of a cure.
Are you wondering what types of scams and schemes you need to be aware of? Even worse, were you injured by a false test, fake vaccine or faulty cure? If so, then it’s important to know what steps you should take next. Read on to learn everything you need to know about the latest Covid-19 scams.
Be Aware of the Latest Coronavirus Scams
The Coronavirus pandemic has been ongoing since the beginning of 2020. Some researchers believe that it may have surfaced in humans as early as November of 2019. Despite months of research, doctors are still puzzled at how they should treat the novel virus.
In response to a lack of treatment options and test shortages, several individuals have attempted to create and sell faulty cures, fake tests and even miracle cures. The FDA is urging citizens to be cautious about these products. Here’s what you need to watch out for:
- Treatment scams: colloidal silver, elderberry syrup and other drugs
- Provider scams: Individuals pretending to be with the health department and demanding payment for tests
- Charity scams: Individuals asking for donations but never sending them to the parties that need it
- Investment scams: Individuals asking for money to invest in a Coronavirus cure or research
Right now, the FDA has NOT approved any vaccine or any medicines to treat Covid-19. Be wary of anyone claiming to have secret information or miracle cures regarding this new virus.
What to Do if You Get Injured by a False Test or Vaccine
Were you injured by a fake test, vaccine, or consumer product? If a person is intentionally selling a fraudulent product or intentionally creating fake test kits, then they’re breaking the law. The losses you suffer as a result of this intentional harm is recoverable through a personal injury lawsuit.
While the world appears to be in chaos right now, there’s still hope. We will get through this together, and you will be able to recoup from your losses.
