ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — New York’s Attorney General is warning about potential COVID-19 scam emails.

The AG says as more New Yorkers become eligible for the COVID vaccine, and a new round of stimulus payments are sent out, scammers are looking to cash in.

You’re reminded not to be fooled by familiar logos and branding, look for misspelled words and grammatical mistakes and never open attachments or click on links from those claiming to be from the government unless you yourself have specifically signed up for a notification or an email.
