Scam artists are always looking to take advantage of a situation to steal from you. They've been using the COVID-19 pandemic and federal relief monies as tools to gain personal information from unsuspecting victims.

If you receive an email about pandemic relief, no matter how "official-looking," REMEMBER:

  • Cobb County will not reach out to you directly about receiving federal assistance money.
  • Do NOT give out personal ID information to any of these sites.
  • All official assistance information can be found at
  • Any questions or concerns? Call us at 770-528-1000 or email us at [email protected]
