Beware COVID-19 Scams


Attorney General Keith Ellison issued a warning to Minnesotans to avoid potential charity scams related to COVID-19. With the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases rising in Minnesota, there is a risk that scammers will try to prey on the generosity of Minnesota donors by tricking them into donating to causes that claim to help COVID-19 patients or to alleviate the strain on overtaxed resources.

Attorney General Ellison wants Minnesotans to do their homework before they donate and to file a complaint with his office if they believe they have been scammed by a fake COVID-19-related charity by calling 1-800-657-3787.
