Better Business Bureau (BBB) reports 255 COVID-19 related scam inquiries through April 7. Scammers have taken on new deception techniques to target businesses during the pandemic.

These scams include impersonating company presidents to collect funds, fake supply companies offering necessities, phony offers of small business grants and more.

BBB urges business owners and others to verify information before sending sensitive data, and to beware of phishing e-mails, which might include generic greetings, fake websites, distorted text, or an unrecognizable e-mail address.
