Scammers exploit situations when people are most vulnerable. The COVID-19 brought in a great amount of uncertainty, which scammers saw as an opportunity to exploit individuals. During this time, there were prevalent scams relating to stimulus checks, economic impact payments, and many more. The IRS, Federal Trade Commission, and the Nevada Attorney General constantly warned us of COVID-19 related scams.
With businesses reopening, the community slowly recovering and figuring out the new norm, this time may be an opportunity for scammers to find new and creative ways to exploit our community.
Despite the prevalence of scams, we know good things happen when our community comes together. We hope you will join us.
