Authorities believe scammers are setting up fake COVID-19 testing sites.

The FTC issued a warning that scammers may be using legitimate-looking signs, tents, hazmat suits, and realistic-looking tests to fool people being examined.

According to reports, scammers use the sites to collect their target's personal information and convince unsuspecting victims that payment is required to be tested.

The FTC suggested folks wanting to be tested should make sure to get a referral and recommendation to a specific testing site from a healthcare provider or check with state or local officials for a list of sites.
