FBI Warns of Fraud Schemes During Pandemic
April 13, 2020 FBI Warns of Advance Fee and BEC Schemes Related to Procurement of PPE and Other Supplies During COVID-19 Pandemic The Federal Bureau of Investigation is providing this industry alert to warn government and health care industry buyers of rapidly emerging fraud trends related to procurement of personal protective equipment (PPE), medical equipment such as ventilators, and other supplies or equipment in short supply during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The FBI recently became aware of multiple incidents in which state government agencies, attempting to procure such equipment, wire transferred funds to fraudulent brokers and sellers in advance of receiving the items. The brokers and sellers included both domestic and foreign entities. In one case, an individual claimed to represent an entity with which the purchasing agency had an existing business relationship. By the time the purchasing agencies became suspicious of the transactions, much of the funds had been transferred outside the reach of U.S. law enforcement and were unrecoverable. The current environment, in which demand for PPE and certain medical equipment far outstrips supply, is ripe for fraudulent actors perpetrating advance fee and business email compromise (BEC) schemes, such as those described above. In advance fee schemes related to procurement, a victim pre-pays (partially or in full) a purported seller or a broker for a good or service and then receives little or nothing in return. BEC schemes often involve the spoofing of a legitimate known email address or use of a nearly identical email address to communicate with a victim to redirect legitimate payments to a bank account controlled by fraudsters. A variation on BEC schemes can involve similar social engineering techniques via phone call. Risk Factors While pre-payment is more common in the current environment, it substantially increases the risk of a buyer being defrauded and eliminates most potential recourse. The following indicators are warning signs that an offer to sell items may not be legitimate: A seller or broker initiates the contact with the buyer, especially from a difficult to verify channel such as telephone or personal email. The seller or broker is not an entity with which the buyer has an existing business relationship, or the buyer’s existing business relationships are a matter of public record. The seller or broker cannot clearly explain the origin of the items or how they are available given current demand. The potential buyer cannot verify with the product manufacturer that the seller is a legitimate distributor or vendor of the product, or otherwise verify the supply chain is legitimate. Unexplained urgency to transfer funds or a last minute change in previously-established wiring instructions. Mitigation Recommendations The FBI recommends that buyers consider the following recommendations to protect their companies or agencies: If the seller claims to represent an entity with an existing relationship to the buyer, verify claims through a known contact—do not contact the vendor through information provided in an email or phone communication. If possible, have a trusted independent party verify the items for sale are physically present and of the promised make, model, and quality, and take delivery immediately upon payment. If immediate delivery is impossible, route payments to a domestic escrow account to be released to the seller upon receipt of the promised items. Verify with the manufacturer or verified distributor that the seller is a legitimate distributor or vendor for the items being offered. Be skeptical of last minute changes in wiring instructions or recipient account information—do not re-route payments without independently verifying the direction came from an authorized party. Verify the email address used to send emails, especially when using a mobile or handheld device, by ensuring the sender’s email address appears to match who it is coming from. If you think your company or agency is the victim of a fraud scheme related to COVID-19 immediately contact the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at ic3.gov.

Community Support Ideas for Emotional Health
It is widely known that there are many benefits to community service. In addition to learning new skills and making new friendships, volunteering is known to make people feel happier and healthier as well as fostering an increased sense of social responsibility. In the legal industry, for example, there are many opportunities to provide pro bono work. However, there are many other types of community outreach and support that anyone with an interest or various resources can provide. While many may think of community service as painting schools, building playgrounds or hosting a clothing drive, there are many ways to make a positive impact in the world in accordance with the current social distancing rules and even more that can be done without even leaving your home. Here are just a few ideas. Sew masks: Hundreds of positive stories are popping up across the U.S. about people sewing masks to mobilize against coronavirus. Forbes published a call to people who sew to help make masks for the 2020 healthcare workers’ PPE shortage. Thank you to those in Bucks County and around the world for taking part in this incredible effort. Give blood: Red Cross blood donation locations are popping up all over the country and at Doylestown Health. If you are healthy and able, go to redcross.org to sign up. Donate to the local food pantry: Many articles have highlighted the need for food so that no one goes hungry during the COVID-19 pandemic. Encourage your companies and employees to search for local pantries and provide support. If there are no pantries in your area, national organizations such as Feeding America are taking donations. Consider contacting the Bucks County Housing Group which operates food pantries in our neck of the woods. Temporary protocols are listed on their website at bchg.org Use your 3-D printer: If you have access to a 3-D printer, you can support your local medical professionals by printing pieces for ventilators and face shields. Individuals, student groups and businesses throughout the world have stepped up to fundraise and create personal protective equipment (PPE) to help with the shortage that medical facilities are facing. Virtual Volunteering: By using a volunteer matching website such as VolunteerMatch or Catchafire, you can match your skills to one of hundreds of virtual volunteer opportunities worldwide. This is a great way to offer your expertise and make an impact in a cause area you are passionate about such as health and medicine, children and youth, education, and more. Donate: The United Way of Bucks County and Penn Community Bank partnered to create the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery Fund aimed at helping those who may experience a financial crisis as the result of the pandemic. The need for these funds continues to grow and our community has responded. More information can be found at www.uwbucks.org/COVIDrecovery. Exercise for a Cause: If you are a fitness enthusiast or are looking for motivation to get into a regular routine, several apps such as Charity Miles or Walk for a Dog will donate to a charitable organization of your choice for every mile you walk, run or bike. In times of crisis, many of us find ourselves wondering how we can help those in need or most affected. By volunteering time or skills, we not only make an impact in our community but we reduce the effects of stress, anger, or anxiety that people all over the world experience during times of crisis.
