Just letting you know that there have been scam callers recently who call and say “According to our contact tracing, you have been in close proximity to someone who has been tested positive for COVID-19. This means you now need to self isolate and take the COVID-19 test.
I cannot give you any information about the person or the whereabouts of contact due to privacy laws.
But you need to be tested within the next 72 hours.
So, can I get the best mailing address for you so that we can send out a testing kit?”
After you give the address, they will ask for your payment card number and details quoting that the test kit and results is a $50 charge and is not free.
If you refuse to give them your bank card / credit card details, they threaten saying that there are penalties for not complying.
So, please be wary. And if you know any vulnerable people who would fall for this scam… alert them to it.
