As companies get closer to producing a vaccine the Department of Homeland Security is getting ready for impending scams.

Officials worry the emergency nature of vaccine delivery will make people less cautious.

Investigators are already working with companies to see how the product will be packaged to help educate people about what's real and what's a scam.

Homeland Security investigators have already looked at more than 70,000 websites suspected of being involved in some type of COVID-19 fraud.
