You are correct - coronavirus forms of fraud are emerging across our communities. Unfortunately, scammers prey on the fear of consumers surrounding the pandemic. Scammers are calling and sending phony emails and texts to consumers asking for personal information. Remember, CorTrust will never ask you to give out your personal information over the phone, via text, or through email. Please be vigilant with any correspondence that asks for personal information, so you avoid falling victim to one of these malicious scams. The Federal Trade Commission's website is offering additional tips to keep the scammers at bay.
