Scammers using COVID-19 to steal personal information

Everyone needs to watch out for COVID-19-related fraud! Scammers are using the COVID-19 pandemic to benefit themselves. Scammers may offer COVID-19 testing or treatment through phone calls, social media, and/or door-to-door visits. These services are not real and will not help you.

The scammers want to steal your personal information, such as your Social Security number, bank information, ForwardHealth ID, and QUEST card number or PIN. Scammers use this information to steal money or your identity.

Members should not answer any ads for COVID-19 testing or treatment or give out any personal information in this emergency unless they know who they are talking to. If members receive a phone call asking for personal information and aren’t sure of who they are talking to, they should hang up and call ForwardHealth Member Services at 800-362-3002 or their agency to find out if the call is real.

If someone calls or visits you about COVID-19 and you think they are a scammer, you can report it.

COVID-19: You Are Safer at Home

In spite of restrictions on large and small groups, the number of people infected with COVID-19 continues to grow resulting in more individuals needing medical care and accelerating the possibility of exceeding Wisconsin’s health care resources. Social distancing—the practice of keeping at least 6 feet apart from others and avoiding direct physical contact—is proving the only effective means of slowing the rate of infection. Therefore, DHS, under the authority of Wis. Stat. §§ 252.02(3) and (6) and the direction of Gov. Evers, has updated prior orders regarding mass gatherings and gatherings of more than 10 people to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The order is effective at 8:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, and will remain in effect until 8:00 a.m. on Friday, April 24, 2020, or until a superseding order is issued.
