Incident Type: COVID-19 Scams
Criminals are exploiting the COVID-19 outbreak in various ways, including impersonating Red Cross volunteers offering coronavirus testing door-to-door.
Red Cross does not provide coronavirus testing. If someone comes to your residence claiming to be with Red Cross, do not open the door and notify the police immediately.
Additionally, if you receive a text message by someone claiming to be a healthcare professional or Red Cross who is selling or giving away supplies, such as masks or testing kits, do not click any links. It is not a legitimate offer.
We encourage you to remain vigilant and certainly report any suspicious activity to us at 9-1-1 or (616) 632-6357.
