CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - With Christmas just days away, the Cleveland Better Business Bureau is warning of Grinch-like scammers.

While some are gearing up for family gatherings and travel, the BBB said others are looking to make a quick buck with fake COVID tests, treatments and vaccines.

If you’re looking for an at-home rapid test this holiday season, the BBB recommends following these safety practices:

  • Check with your doctor or local health department
  • Check claims of FDA approval
  • Be suspicious of advertising claims
  • Only buy from reputable stores and websites.
  • Be sure the online store has working contact info
