BBB Warns Of Phony Face Masks For Coronavirus
COUNTERFEIT FACE MASKS AND OTHER SCAMS POPPING UP DURING CORONAVIRUS SCARE
(CNN) – Face masks might seem ubiquitous in areas hardest hit with coronavirus.
But, the Better Business Bureau warns; con artists might use them to scam you.
The Bureau says to watch out for low-quality counterfeit masks.
It says some online retailers might take your money and never send the mask.
Others might just take your credit card information.
And, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says masks might not be a good option for the general public anyway.
Coronavirus isn’t the first health scare that’s produced scams.
People sold fake remedies during the Ebola outbreak.
