A Covid testing company is currently being investigated by the Hood County Sheriff’s Department for fraud and identity theft according to a CBS 21 DFW article published on December 17th. In it they say:
“Hood County Sheriff’s Office Investigators are looking into a COVID testing company after people have complained about never receiving their results.
The testing was conducted on Dec.8-9 in a Kroger parking lot. Investigators said those tested may have fallen victim to identity theft or fraud.”
Apparently, the tests were being conducted free of charge, but the service abruptly came to a halt once service was clearly not up to par according to a Hood County News article published on December 17th. In it they say:
“The company that administered free COVID-19 tests in partnership with Hood County and the city of Granbury is under investigation. The Dec. 8-9 testing on the Kroger parking lot abruptly ended after the quality of service was not up to par, according to the county. The sheriff’s office on Thursday said people are having trouble getting test results, and some suspect they may be victims of identity theft or fraud. For questions or to file a complaint call the sheriff’s office at 817-579-3316.”
The public is encouraged to reach out to the Sheriff’s office for any leads and complaints about this issue.
