New year, new scam. We're not even a full week into 2022 and there's already a new scam that's trying to rip people off, hack into their computers and steal their identities. It didn't take long for scammers to come up with another way to get your personal details and attempt to rob you of hard-earned cash and good name.
I was running down rabbit holes on YouTube yesterday evening and ran across a quick video from KOCO 5 News about a new scam that affects OMM (Oklahoma Medical Marijuana) licensees. It's an email scam that has links and attachments and looks official like it came from the OMMA (Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority). If you click on the links or open the attachments you could get everything from a virus, spyware, or could even have your computer/device hacked and your identity stolen. It looks very official, but it's not. Hit play on the video below from the KOCO 5 News YouTube channel for all the details on this new scam:
So first things first. If you're an Oklahoma medical marijuana license holder and receive any emails or other communication from the OMMA make sure it's official and legit. Check to see if the email address has is a .gov before clicking on any links or opening attachments. Scammers are really good at fooling you into thinking something's legitimate, so be on the lookout and double-check everything to ensure it's official.
The last thing you want to do is have your computer/device compromised, hacked, or taken completely out by a virus. Or worse have your identity stolen and risk losing critical financial information, account details and spend months repairing all the damage. So now you know, and knowing is half the battle...G.I. Joe!
