From the Chief’s Desk:  COVID-19 SCAMS and SCHEMES

Scams and Schemes that have been reported around the United States.  The U.S. Attorney’s Offices have received reports of individuals and businesses engaging in a wide range of fraudulent and criminal behavior. This includes:

  • Robocalls making fraudulent offers to sell respirator masks with no intent of delivery
  • Fake COVID-19-related apps and websites that install malware or ransomware
  • Phishing emails asking for money or presenting malware
  • Social media scams fraudulently seeking donations or claiming to provide stimulus funds if the recipient enters his or her bank account number
  • Sales of fake testing cures, ” immunity” pills, and protective equipment
  • Fraudulent offers for free COVID-19 testing in order to obtain Medicare beneficiary information that is used to submit false medical claims for unrelated, unnecessary, or fictitious testing or services
  • Prescription drug schemes involving the submission of medical claims for unnecessary antiretroviral treatments or other drugs that are marketed as purported cures for COVID- 19
  • Robberies of patients departing from hospitals or doctor offices
  • Threats to intentionally infect other people

You should be on the lookout for these sorts of schemes, as well as any others like them.

Additionally, individuals or businesses may be accumulating medical supplies or devices beyond what they reasonably need on a daily basis, or for the purpose of selling them in excess of prevailing market prices. It is illegal to acquire medical supplies and devices designated by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) as scarce in order to hoard them or sell them for excessive prices. Such conduct may be prosecuted at the local level or, in some cases at the federal level.

The Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office is interested in prosecuting individuals who are price gouging of items related to the COVID-19 Virus.  Contact the Black Butte Police Department if you suspect someone of price gouging or have been the target price gouging.

Individuals can report coronavirus-related complaints to:

  • Black Butte Police Department 541-693-6911
  • The National Center for Disaster Fraud (NCDF) Hotline – 1-866-720-5721 or disaster@.leo.gov.
