FBI Omaha warns of post-COVID vaccination scam

Posted Apr 06, 2021 6:41 PM

OMAHA-The FBI Omaha Field Office is warning our communities of a new COVID-19 scam that is targeting people who have received a COVID vaccination. An increasing number of those vaccinated are being asked via email and/or text message to participate in a fraudulent post-vaccine survey. If they participate, they are promised a prize or cash.

No post-vaccine surveys are being conducted by Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson. Any emails or text messages that appear to be sent from those companies seeking personal financial information, are fraudulent.

In addition to the fake vaccine survey, FBI Omaha is also warning people not to post photos of your vaccine card to social media websites. Your personal information could be stolen to commit fraud.
