Omaha FBI field office puts out warning about COVID-19 vaccine scams

The Federal Bureau of Investigation Omaha Field Office is warning against COVID-19 vaccine scams.

The FBI says they've received several tips about scams and are asking anyone who receives a call like this to report it.

Here are potential signs of a scam:

  • You are asked to pay out of pocket to get a vaccine.
  • You are asked to pay to put your name on a vaccine waiting list or to get early access.
  • Advertisements for vaccines through social media platforms, email, telephone calls, online, or from unsolicited/unknown sources.
  • Marketers offering to sell or ship doses of the vaccine for payment.
  • The FBI also reminds the public to protect themselves by not giving out personal information to unknown sources.

If you believe you’re a victim of possible vaccine fraud, immediately report it to:

  • HHS-OIG Hotline 1-800-HHS-TIPS or
  • FBI Hotline 1-800-CALL-FBI or
  • CMS/Medicare Hotline 1-800-MEDICARE
