JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — With many elderly Floridians continuing to be isolated due to the coronavirus pandemic, scam artists are using the emergency to rip them off.
According to Attorney General Ashley Moody, an increasing number of crooks are using high-pressure sales tactics, unsolicited phone calls, requests for wire transfers and computer tech scams to take advantage of people. She has set up a new website, called ‘Scams At A Glance’, with information on current and emerging scams, available in English and Spanish.
Moody says Floridians should talk to their vulnerable family members about not becoming victims of fraud.
