LAS VEGAS (LVPR) — Today, U.S. Attorney Nicholas A. Trutanich for the District of Nevada and Special Agent in Charge Aaron C. Rouse for the FBI warned of several new fraud schemes seeking to exploit the evolving coronavirus public health emergency.

Scammers have already devised numerous methods for defrauding people in connection with COVID-19. They are setting up websites, contacting people by phone and email, and posting disinformation on social media platforms.
