Fake cures, phony charities, fraudulent promises of early stimulus payments—authorities are flooded with complaints

Danita Sienknecht was on a car ride with her husband one recent morning when a stranger called her with an outlandish offer. If she wired him $4,000 overnight, someone would show up at her door the next morning with two doses of a coveted coronavirus vaccine she knew doesn’t exist.

The caller who knew her name said he was at Holiday Inn not far from her Southwest Missouri home and told the 84-year-old to send the money right away. He called her 29 more time when she refused to call to call back.
