Viral Voicemail Scam

There is no truth to a viral voicemail warning of a four-week nationwide quarantine coming to the United States. The voicemail warns that you won't be able to do any shopping -- including for groceries -- under this supposed quarantine and that the announcement will come in one to two weeks. The voicemail warns it’s imperative to stock up on food.

The source? Three unnamed people who vaguely claim they have positions connected to the U.S. government. Similar messages have also spread through text messages and group chats. Much like the voicemail, they warn of an impending quarantine, tell people to stock up on food and refer to vague unnamed sources.

Simply put, there is no evidence of this.
