Homeland Security on alert for COVID vaccine scams: Here are red flags to watch for
It’s been a busy time for Homeland Security as they work to stop foreign agents, as well as local scammers, from targeting victims with a COVID-19 vaccine scam. Even before the first trucks started rolling out with the COVID-19 vaccine last week, special agents from Detroit’s Homeland Security office were already at work. Vance Callender is the Special Agent in Charge with Detroit Homeland Security said. The second red flag to watch out for when it comes to COVID-19 vaccine scams is that you should not be paying money upfront. If you know of any suspicious activity you should reach out to Homeland Security by emailing email@example.com or calling the tipline at 313-226-0500.
