Fraudsters are willing to exploit fear arising from the coronavirus crisis - including by offering unlicensed testing kits for COVID-19 on fraudulent websites.  

This sort of scam accords with the UK National Crime Agency's warning that criminals are taking advantage of COVID-19 to increase fraudulent activity (see our alert here). 

Fraud can come in many guises – by false representation, failure to disclose information or abuse of position – sadly we may see more of all of these during this current crisis.
