INTERPOL warns of financial fraud linked to COVID-19
Criminals taking advantage of coronavirus anxiety to defraud victims online. One type is listed below, related to not receiving goods that were paid for, but another type of fraud is related to: Compromising or impersonating a senders email address to contact a customer to request a change of bank details in lieu of supposed banks closures due to COVID-19. (a company I know personally had this happen to themjust yesterday).
INTERPOL is encouraging the public to exercise caution when buying medical supplies online during the current health crisis, with criminals capitalizing on the situation to run a range of financial scams.
