On the phone:
Hang up on robocalls. Do not press any numbers, answer questions, or provide personal information or credit card numbers, or make any form of payment to someone with whom you have not previously done business.
Do not click on links sent to you by email or text that are from new or unknown/unverified senders. Criminals may create fraudulent emails that appear to be from organizations like the CDC or World Health Organization, with clickable links, in an attempt to steal personal or financial information from your phone, tablet, or computer.

Be leery of donating to anyone you do not know or who makes you feel rushed – especially if they are soliciting cash, gift cards, or asking you to wire money. Instead of making a solicited donation, consider making an unsolicited donation locally, or by seeking out a reputable, verified website for a known relief organization. For more help on this, visit www.sos.tn.gov/charitable.
The government will not ask you to pay anything up-front to get relief or other government checks. There are no charges or fees, ever. The government will not call and ask for your Social Security number, bank account number, or credit card number. Anyone who calls requesting you to provide or verify these numbers is attempting to defraud you. Hang up.
