Federal officials are warning Americans of a fake post-vaccine survey scammers are sending around in an effort to harvest personal information.
“Fraudulent schemes like this emphasize the need to remain vigilant of those trying to profit from the most vulnerable in the midst of a pandemic,” Steve Francis, director of the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, said in a statement Wednesday.
The scammers deliver the fake surveys via email and text messages and promise free prizes in exchange for filling out the survey, including an iPad Pro. They ask for credit card information to purportedly cover shipping costs for the prize — which the scammers then steal, putting victims at risk of identity and credit card fraud.
