Watch your inbox as Nebraska Chief Medical officer Dr. Joann Schaefer says a hoax is circulating asking you to fill out a personal H1N1 flu profile. The email contains a link that takes you to a website. The website says it is put up by the Centers for Disease control. Schaefer says it’s all a lie.
“We’ve seen situations where scammers are using genuine concern about H1N1 for their own gain and it’s just a reminder for common sense to apply when you’re giving personal information over the internet.”
Shaefer says you should always be suspicious of emails asking for your personal information.
