Beware Of The Brushing Scam

The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security is warning Kentuckians of a potential scam related to unsolicited packages from foreign countries.They said many Kentuckians have received packages containing masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) in the mail they didn’t order.“State officials believe this is a brushing scam where third-party sellers try to obtain five-star reviews in order to boost sales. In a brushing scam, businesses will send out cheap items to U.S. residents then generate fake positive reviews from the bogus transaction,” the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security said.
