“It is essential that the Department of Justice remain vigilant in detecting, investigating, and prosecuting wrongdoing related to the crisis,” said U.S. Attorney General William Barr in the Memorandum sent out to attorney offices across the nation.

[...]

The DOJ also advises consumers to be vigilant and follow protective measures to fend off any fraudulent attempts:

• Verify the authenticity of any company, charity or person contacting you with COVID-19-related content

• Watch out for websites or email addresses impersonating legitimate authorities such as the WHO and the CDC

• Delete unsolicited emails that address coronavirus treatments, vaccines or supplies

• Do not provide any personal information to people contacting you via SMS or social media posts in return for monetary aid or other goods

• Do not access email attachments from unverified sources. Authorities do not provide updates and information regarding the development of the pandemic via email to the public

• Install a local security solution that is up to date
