(WSIL) -- Experts in the cyber community are talking about a new COVID-19 scam.

The director of Southern Illinois University's Computer Networks and Cyber Defense Lab, Abdullah Aydeger said one scam involves fake or phishing websites.

A person thinks they are on a legitimate COVID-19 website but in fact, the site is created by a cybercriminal who uses it to steal your personal information.

Experts are also concerned about a possible scam involving BOTS that uses automation to steal vaccine appointments before you can schedule one.
