BEWARE: SFPD Issues Warning About Fraudulent Door-to-Door Visitors & Coronvirus Scams
San Francisco Police Department is receiving information about subjects going door to door and claiming to be employees of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) or the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH). These subjects are apparently asking for entry into residences to conduct inspections or searches. Neither the CDC nor SFDPH have personnel going door-to-door conducting inspections.
City Disaster Services Workers and volunteers are placing informational door hangers in various neighborhoods. These persons will have City identification, and will not ask for permission to enter any residences or establishments.
If someone claiming to be with CDC or SFDPH calls at your door, do not let them in.
- Call 9-1-1 and provide the dispatcher with the suspect’s description and as much detail as possible.
- Or call San Francisco’s district attorney’s office hotline to report scams: 415-551-9595.
Additionally, some seniors have reported receiving a call from someone claiming to be a health official and stating that someone in their family has tested positive for the Coronavirus and extra money is needed for their care. Again, no one will contact you demanding money for this situation. Hang up and call San Francisco’s district attorney’s office hotline to report scams: 415-551-9595.
