A.G. Aaron Ford warns Nevadans to watch out for Covid-19 scams…

OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

Attorney General Ford Warns Nevadans of Coronavirus Scams

Carson City, NV – Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford is warning consumers to be alert of scammers looking to take advantage of fear surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) to sell fake products or steal your money or personal information. Fraudsters may use text messages, social media and emails to promote these scams.

Consumers should be cautious of fraudsters using these platforms as a means to raise awareness, asking for victim donations, offering advice on unproven treatments, or sending harmful attachments and links. Scammers may also use crowdfunding websites to promote their false information in an effort to look more legitimate. Consumers should also be on the lookout for bogus products claiming to cure or prevent the virus.

“Nevadans should be assured that your leaders and healthcare providers are working hard every day to keep you safe and healthy,” said AG Ford. “In addition to the hygiene precautions Nevadans are encouraged to take, my office reminds you to be cautious of scammers trying to capitalize on your uncertainty. Learn how to protect yourself with these tips and look to my office as a resource.”

As with other phishing scams, AG Ford and his Bureau of Consumer Protection offer the following tips to protect your personal information and pockets:

  • Avoid clicking on links in emails or messages from people you don’t know. These links might download a virus, or redirect to a site that was created to steal your personal information. Make sure your anti-virus software is up to date;
  • Be wary of emails and posts claiming to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or other experts. Up to date information will be provided on the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO) websites;
  • Be  cautious of online promotions for vaccines, treatments, or cures for coronavirus. If there were a medical breakthrough, it would not be advertised for the first time through a sales pitch; and
  • Conduct research before donating to charities or crowdfunding websites. Do not be rushed into making a donation. Be particularly on guard for those asking for donations through wire transfer, gift card or exclusively cash.
  • Relatedly, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has warned investors to be aware of fraudsters offering an investment opportunity with alleged publicly traded companies that promote services or products claiming to prevent, detect or cure coronavirus. The promotions may take the form of a “research report” and make predictions that the stocks will increase in value as a result. These stocks may take the form of microcap stocks, which are typically only used by small companies. Before investing in any company or sending money, the SEC cautions you to do your research.
  • For information on the status of coronavirus as well as resources, visit the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services website and the Federal Trade Commission website. If you believe you have been a victim related to these or any other scams, you may file a complaint with the Office of the Nevada Attorney General here, or with the Federal Trade Commission on its website. Nevada consumers are also encouraged to call the Nevada Attorney General’s Bureau of Consumer Protection hotline toll free at (888) 434-9989 for assistance and information.

Thursday update on Covid-19 virus situation…

Carona Virus

Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) is reporting a presumptive positive case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus. This is the first case reported in the Quad County region: Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, and Storey counties. The test has been sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for confirmation. The test results will be considered “presumptive positive” until they are confirmed by the CDC.

The patient is a female Carson City resident in her 70’s. This is a travel related incident. Her recent travel history includes a flight she took from the San Jose International Airport into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, during her travels she was not symptomatic.

After feeling symptoms, the patient contacted her health care provider who sent her to the Carson City Health and Human Services hotline. Through the hotline a test was arranged and conducted in a manner to prevent exposure to our community. Carson City Health and Human Services is contact-tracing and monitoring the patient as well as her husband. Both are self-isolating inside their home.

While this is a serious public health threat, the immediate risk to the general public in Carson City, Douglas, Lyon, and Storey counties is considerably low.

The public can help response by:

* Not going to the emergency department unless it is essential. Emergency departments need to be able to serve the most severe needs.

* Practice everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses:
* Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
* Stay home when you are sick.
* Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw that tissue in the trash.
* Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. Remember to clean your cell phones.
* Wash your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. is actively investigating this case and will provide more information when it becomes available.
* Stay informed; for updates and more information on COVID-19 visit https://gethealthycarsoncity.org/novel-coronavirus-2019/. Carson City Health and Human Services Hotline phone number is (775) 283-4789.

Sample from Carson City resident sent to CDC to determine if it’s Covid-19

Carona Virus

The Carson City Health Department just announced that a “presumptive” case of “Covid-19 virus” has shown up in Carson City.  A sample was taken from the person, a sample that is now enroute to be tested by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to determine if it is what they fear it is.

The elderly woman was visiting San Jose, CA and became ill.  She returned to Carson City and medical officials say samples they took from her are being tested at the CDC.  However, conversations with the woman produced a comment from her that she woke up this morning feeling very good.  Much better than previous days.

But there is the added element of the 49 Nevadans aboard the cruise ship Grand Princess who have been declared “asymptomatic” which means they may be carrying the virus but they show no symptoms.  Governor Sisolak offered to send all 49 to a Nevada military base where they could carry out their two week incubation period to determine if they really do have the Covid-19 virus.  But the CDC turned him down.  So they’re waiting to find out where they’re going to go to fulfill the rest of their 14 day confinement.

More information as it’s made available.

Heavy interior damage to a home at Airport and Sherman

Fire started inside the home. Appears accidental. No one home at the time.

Fire at home off Airport Road at Sherman. Both family dogs were rescued.

Carson City Firefighters raced to the scene of a house fire at Airport and Sherman.  The neighbors called 9-1-1 Wednesday afternoon  and said thick clouds of black smoke were coming out and rising on the south side of the dwelling.  Although no humans were home, two family dogs were home and were promptly rescued.  They both appear to be okay.

Firefighters say the fire started about midway between the front and back of the home. Interior and roof damage were considerable.  Firefighters told the owners that the dwelling is uninhabitable.  The two men who live in the house are being given emergency shelter by the American Red Cross.

Heavy interior damage means the two occupants will not be back in their own home for quite a while. No specific cause has been determined according to firefighters.
