The Arkansas Division of Emergency Management has issued a warning concerning COVID-19 scams that have arisen amid the rapidly spreading pandemic.

In a press release Wednesday, the ADEM warned that there have been reports of people impersonating employees from the Center for Disease Control who have been going door-to-door offering COVID-19 testing in exchange for money and personal information.

The ADEM has confirmed that there are no CDC employees testing for the coronavirus door-to-door.

Residents encountering someone at their door stating that they have arrived in order to test occupants for COVID-19 should file a consumer complaint with the Arkansas Attorney General’s office.

The office can be reached at 501-682-2007 or 800-482-8982.

A customer complaint form can also be found online at arkansasag.gov/forms/file-a-consumer-complaint.
