COVID-19

Fraud

As the scourge of COVID-19 spreads around the world, the scourge of scams related to the pandemic has too. From fake tests to phishing and phone scams, individuals, hospitals and governments have fallen prey to fraud.
Scams related to PPE are on the rise as well. As a member of a public-private partnership between government and the private sector focused on national security and crime, Ms. Loftur-Thun gets regular updates on growing criminal threats.
 
Minerva Medica supports efforts to combat price gouging, hoarding, and fraudulent sales of PPE, tests and other supplies. We do our homework before making referrals to suppliers. We are committed to adhering to the highest professional and ethical standards, and empowering you to stay safe from scams as well from COVID-19. 

Ask The Right Questions

To prevent fraud and stay safe from scams, experts advise:
  1. Learn about current scams and tactics used by criminals--see our resources above and below
  2. Don't provide confidential personal or organizational information without vetting contacts  
  3. Conduct due diligence on brokers, suppliers, and manufacturers, including doing Google searches
  4. Ask questions about PPE suppliers and manufacturers, including location and experience
  5. Verify delivery estimates and track record of deliveries
  6. Ask about pricing, including suppliers' costs, mark-ups and market competition
  7. Require an SGS Inspection Report, and consider getting an SGS Quality and Quantity Report.
