A Growing List of Coronavirus Scams

The COVID-19 vaccine is here. But that doesn’t mean an end to coronavirus scams. In fact, the FTC has already warned of scams related to the vaccine rollout. Meanwhile, COVID cases in the U.S. are surging, again.

Throughout the pandemic, TINA.org has maintained this list of known and alleged coronavirus scams. Any marketer that seeks to take advantage of the pandemic, either through the dissemination of false health claims or the deceptive marketing of “pandemic-proof” business opportunities or any other coronavirus-related scheme, is a potential candidate for the list.

We will continue to update this post regularly. And if there is a product or company you think should be added to the list, let us know here.
