BLANCHARD, Okla. (KFOR) – The Blanchard Police Department is investigating after they heard reports of a scam involving COVID-19 testing.

On Friday, Blanchard police posted to their Facebook saying:

“WARNING: Sadly, It has been reported by some agencies surrounding Blanchard that some people are going house to house offering to mitigate, or test for the COVID-19 Virus. Subsequently they are stealing from the home owner.

So, please be careful of allowing anyone into your home, and notify the Blanchard Police Department of any suspicious activity in your area.”

KFOR contacted Blanchard police who say they were actually just sharing information they got from the town of Amber.

We called Amber’s police department and Amber police said they don’t know anything about it. They then added that they had heard reports about the scam happening, but said it was not in Amber.
