August 3-9, 2020 La Mirada Crime Summary

Be Aware of COVID-19 Scams

COVID-19 has created opportunities for scammers to send fake emails and texts promoting counterfeit products and soliciting money or personal information. 

 Do not open or click on phishing emails, links, or attachments that are not recognizable. This gives scammers the opportunity to gain access of your personal information if you click, open, or log into a fake page. 

 It is advised that residents be cautious of anyone selling products that claim to prevent, treat, diagnose, or cure COVID-19. Counterfeit products including sanitizing products and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are also known to exist. More information on unapproved or counterfeit PPE can be found at cdc.gov/niosh.

 For additional information or to report scams related to COVID-19 contact the La Mirada Community Sheriff’s Station at (562) 902-2960.
