As Covid-19 cases increase, so too will contact tracing. Contact Tracers are people that work for the Hawaii Department of Health to track anyone exposed to Covid-19. Scammers are posing as Contact Tracers in attempts to steal your identity and money.
A legitimate contact tracer may get in touch with you to discuss the results of a test that you knowingly took or if you have had contact with a someone that tested positive. The Hawaii Department of Health may contact you via a call, text, or email. You may be asked to provide:
- Your name and address
- Health information
- The names of places and people you have visited
- Payment for contact tracing
- Social security number
- Bank account information
- Immigration status
- Health insurance information
