New Fairfield officials are warning of some scams related to the pandemic. As vaccines start to be administered, people should be aware that Medicare will cover the COVID-19 vaccine, so there is no out of pocket cost. If anyone asks for a Medicare Number or pay for access to the vaccine, it's a scam. If a resident receives a call, text or email promising the vaccine, if personal or financial information is given, it's a red flag. When towns start to gather that information, be sure to reach out first and not turn over the information to unsolicited communication.s Another round of Stimulus is coming and IRS Security Summit partners warn taxpayers of a COVID-related text scam to trick people into disclosing bank account information. Anyone receiving a text that says further action is required to accept this payment into your account, with a link to accept payment should be aware it will lead to a fake phishing web address.
