ESSEX Police say criminals are exploiting the coronavirus outbreak by preying on people’s worries and concerns, by selling fake medical products online.
The medical products are being sold under the pretense they can either treat or prevent coronavirus.
Essex Police have said that an outbreak like this is unfortunately an opportunity to criminals to take advantage of the vulnerable.
People in the county are being warned to take care against this in many ways including by not clicking on suspicious emails, never giving away any personal information to emails that ask for it and always ensuring they have the latest software installed on their devices.
