TEXT SCAM CLAIMS COVID-19 CONTACT TRACING

TEXT SCAM CLAIMS COVID-19 CONTACT TRACING

The Federal Trade Commission is warning people across Wisconsin about a coronavirus scam. 

Identity thieves have been texting people pretending to be contact tracers for health departments tracking the coronavirus.  A text message claims the victim has been in contact with somebody who tested positive for COVID-19 and advises the victim to access more information using a link that is provided. 

Officials say it’s a scam and clicking that link downloads software which can then access personal information.
