The Sherman Resident State Trooper is warning of a senior Medicare Fraud.
A COVID-19 Vaccine Email Survey that may appear to be coming from Pfizer or Moderna is not legitimate. The email has been sent to people asking them to take a survey in exchange for a reward. The Sherman Resident State Trooper says this is not a legitimate email and called on people not to open emails or click links unless they're from a trusted sender.
Police say scammers have unfortunately used the arrival of the COVID-19 vaccine as an opportunity to obtain sensitive information.
There is no charge for the vaccine. Insurance plans, medical facilities and other providers cannot charge recipients of the vaccine any fees including the administration fee. People can not pay to add their name on a list to get a vaccine.
No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer, like a private insurance company, will call you asking for Social Security number, credit card or bank account information to sign up for the vaccine.
