Justice Department Warns About Fake Post-Vaccine Survey Scams

Fraudsters are everywhere hoping to deceive you out of your money or personal information. The latest series of scams are fraudulent COVID-19 vaccine surveys for consumers to fill out with the promise of a prize or cash at the conclusion of the survey. However, the surveys are used to steal money from consumers and unlawfully capture consumers’ personal information.

Consumers receive the surveys via email and text message, and are told that, as a gift for filling out the survey, they can choose from various free prizes, such as an iPad Pro. The messages claim that the consumers need only pay shipping and handling fees to receive their prize. Victims provide their credit card information and are charged for shipping and handling fees, but never receive the promised prize. Victims also are exposing their personally identifiable information (PII) to scammers, thereby increasing the probability of identity theft.

Unless from a known and verified source, consumers should never click on links in text messages or emails claiming to be a vaccine survey.

State Clarifies Guidance for Outdoor and Indoor Youth and Adult Sports

California has updated its Outdoor and Indoor Youth and Recreational Adult Sports Guidance related to spectators and observers, and inter-team competitions, meets and races.

Spectators and observers for indoor sports is limited to observation of youth sports (age 18 years and under) and is further limited to immediate household members for the strict purpose of age appropriate supervision. This prohibition shall remain in effect until such time as Indoor Seated Live Events and Performance Guidance is posted and becomes effective. At this time, Marin Public Health recommends only one adult spectator per athlete for indoor sporting events. 

Spectators and observers are allowed for outdoor sports pursuant to Outdoor Seated Live Events and Performances. However, sports providers are encouraged to consider video streaming of both indoor and outdoor games so that they can be watched "live" from home to the greatest extent possible.

Inter-team competitions, meets, races, or similar events are permitted to occur only with other teams within the state. This removes the limitation for cross-county competitions with only those that share a border.
