Stein says this act "will make people less safe and make the COVID-19 pandemic last longer."

In a letter, Attorney General Stein is giving the CEO's of Twitter, Ebay and Shopify until Friday to respond.

"Take immediate action to prevent your platforms from being used as a vehicle to commit these fraudulent and deceptive acts," Stein said.

"I expect there will be some form of digital signature," said Stein.
