Coronavirus vaccines are here, and unfortunately so are vaccine-related scams.

The Better Business Bureau has outlined a few tips for spotting the fakers:

1) Do your research – if something seems too good to be true, it usually is.  Check with your doctor or trusted online sources.

2) Ignore a call for immediate action – scammers love to pressure victims into acting now – don’t fall for high-pressure tactics.

3) Double-check the URL – sometimes the website looks official, but the URL is an obvious fake. (Remember that government websites always end with .gov)

For more information, or if you think you have fallen victim to a vaccine scam, contact the BBB of Amarillo at (806) 379-6222.
