With the latest surge of COVID-19 cases across the country, scammers are out in full force seeking to take your money.

According to officials with the Better Business Bureau of Massachusetts, scammers are sending e-mails or making telephone calls, offering consumers the chance to "buy" doses of the coronavirus vaccine or promising to deliver your stimulus check early, provided you share your account number and other important information.

Paula Fleming is the Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for the Better Business Bureau. She visited Townsquare Sunday this week to outline the latest scams related to COVID-19 and where you can get more information. Paula's interview can be heard here:
