    Dutch Police and Public Prosecution Service (in Dutch: Openbaar Ministerie; OM) is investigating scam/fake website offering surgical masks (in Dutch: mondkapjes).

    News at the official site of the OM.
    Article is only in Dutch (sorry)
    Onderzoek naar oplichtingswebsite die mondkapjes aanbood
    https://www.om.nl/actueel/nieuws/2020/03/23/onderzoek-oplichtingswebsite-die-mondkapjes-aanbood

    The scam website is hosted in the US. The OM has asked the website hoster to take it off line.

    (I hope they also notified the US authorities)
