SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, March 16, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Salt Lake City police officials are warning the public of scams in light of the current coronavirus pandemic.

“Beware of #phishing to defraud the #community using #COVID-19 concerns,” said a tweet from Salt Lake City Police Department Monday afternoon. “Here are two that we are aware of. Don’t go to the following site, Corona-virus-map(dot)com. Also, the app, Coronavirusapp(dot)site claims to track the virus, but will lock your phone until a ransom is paid.”
