BBC: Dark web scammers exploit Covid-19 fear and doubt. “‘They’re exploiting the fear, uncertainty and doubt people are experiencing during the pandemic, and using the anxiety and desperation to get people to buy things or click on things they wouldn’t have otherwise,’ says Morgan Wright, a former senior adviser to the US Department of State anti-terrorism assistance programme. He’s talking about the scammers and criminals that inhabit the “dark web” who have found a new angle – anxiety over Covid-19.”
