Redding Police are warning residents to be aware of scams related to the recent health crisis. There have been several unverified reports throughout the country of people posing as personnel from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allegedly conducting a coronavirus survey or investigation.
The CDC is not conducting any such activity. Residents should not grant anyone access into their home whom they do not know, or who were not previously scheduled to be there.
Redding Police are reminding residents who are randomly contacted by telephone regarding any financial problems should never send money or gift cards to anyone who they do not know, and to contact the police department whenever they receive any calls considered suspicious in nature.
