2. Tips from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to avoid coronavirus-related scams
Sadly, there are some scammers who are trying to take advantage of fears surrounding the coronavirus. These scammers are misleading the public by recommending products to prevent or treat the coronavirus that are useless, or even worse, could be dangerous. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) want the public to be aware of these scams. The products that have been identified by the FTC and FDA as being useless or dangerous include teas, essential oils and colloidal silver.
Please see the link below for the FTC website, which has helpful tips.
