fraud alert: COVID-19 contact testing and tracing

08/05/2020 2:11 PM | Anonymous

From the Florida Department of Health (DOH), August 5, 2020

Beware of contact tracing or testing scams. Our colleagues at the health department in Jefferson County shared that some of their residents are getting fraud calls from someone claiming to work with them. The person is asking for personal information such as a Social Security number. Never provide personal information when someone calls regarding COVID-19 tests or contact tracing! Public health will only ask for your date of birth for confirmation if you have been tested. If a call or text seem suspicious, ask for the caller's name and the name of the supervisor. Hang up and give us a call at (727) 824-6932. Our staff can confirm if the caller is a state employee.
