Scams Related to Coronavirus Disease

 The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warns individuals to remain vigilant for scams related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). Cyber actors may send emails with malicious attachments or links to fraudulent websites to trick victims into revealing sensitive information or donating to fraudulent charities or causes.

Exercise caution in handling any email with a COVID-19-related subject line, attachment, or hyperlink, and be wary of social media pleas, texts, or calls related to COVID-19.

We have recently received scam messages in our Minneapolis (MinnState) email system.  Please be vigilant for scams. 

CISA encourages individuals to remain vigilant and take the following precautions.
