    The coronavirus pandemic has been associated with more fraud and identity theft reports to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) than any other event — ever. Fraudsters know that fear, confusion, and economic distress are the elements of their success. Along with individual consumers, businesses large and small are on the scammers' target list. FTC Regional Director Chuck Harwood will talk about pandemic ploys, and strategies for preventing their success.
