“They’re out there online and possibly clutching a cellphone, working to connect with you. Cybercriminals trying to cash in,” Kull said.
The coronavirus pandemic has brought about an entirely new set of scams. Investigators are tracking all the ways thieves are trying to trick people into giving them their personal information and money.
If you get a suspicious email, call or text from someone claiming to be from the IRS do not click any links or give that person any money.
