AG: CDC is NOT going door-to-door performing tests

LITTLE ROCK - The Arkansas Attorney General says while Arkansans are staying home in an attempt to prevent infection and spread of the COVID-19 virus, con artists are out and about going door-todoor targeting frightened senior citizens. Posing as employees of the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), these scammers knock on your door and offer to scan you for the COVID- 19 virus at a cost of $50. These con artists, who are not licensed medical professionals, swab your nasal cavity and pretend to perform a medical test while you watch. To obtain your “test results,” the scammers ask for your banking information, including credit and debit card numbers, and social security number.
