Seven Coronavirus scams targeting your business


    We’ve warned consumers about Coronavirus-related scams, but businesses are at risk, too. Keep your guard up against these seven B2B scams that try to exploit companies’ concerns about COVID-19. In addition to sharing this information with your employees and social networks, read on for how you can report Coronavirus scams to the FTC.

“Public health” scams

    • Fraudsters are sending messages that claim to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), or other public health offices.
    • They may ask for Social Security numbers, tax IDs, etc.
    • Remind your staff not to respond to messages like this and definitely dont download anything or click on links in unsolicited email.

Government check scams

    • But remember that criminals read those headlines, too, and use them to make their phony pitches sound more credible.
    • If someone calls or emails you out of the blue claiming theres money available from a government agency if you just make an up-front payment or provide some personal information, its a phony.
    • Our Checks from the government blog post offers tips on spotting those scams.

Business email scams

    • Weve warned companies about frauds perpetrated via business email.
    • In reality, a con artist has spoofed the boss email address or phone number.
    • Thats why an emergency request that would have raised eyebrows in the past might not set off the same alarms now.
    • Warn your staff about these scams and give them a central in-house contact where they can verify requests they may receive.

I.T. scams

    • These scams pose a particular problem now due to what cybercrime experts call social engineering: the dark art of manipulating human behavior to facilitate fraud.
    • Your employees already may be distracted by changes to their routine and your tech support team is swamped.
    • Your best defense is a workforce warned against this form of fraud.
    • Again, an in-house source for accurate information can help protect your company.

Supply scams

    • With many businesses scrambling for supplies, its wise to heed warnings about websites that mimic the look of well-known online retailers.
    • They claim to have the essentials you need, but in reality, theyre fakes that take your order, grab your credit card number, and run.
    • And before taking a chance on an unfamiliar supplier, check them out with trusted industry colleagues.

Robocall scams

    • Its no surprise that fraudsters who already flout the law would try to exploit peoples COVID concerns to make a buck.
    • This recording targets small business who may be affected by the Coronavirus, warning them to ensure your Google listing is correctly displaying.
    • Weve seen scams like this before and the call definitely isnt from Google.
    • Remind your staff that the only right response to an illegal robocall trying to sell something is to hang up.

Data scams

    • The rest of us may be adjusting to new ways of working, but its business as usual for hackers.
    • With more people telecommuting, hackers are hoping companies will drop their online defenses, making it easier to infiltrate data-rich networks.
    • Also, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has resources on making a safer transition to a remote workplace.
    • Read their recent bulletin on Security for Enterprise Telework, Remote Access, and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Solutions.
