Someone selling N95 masks on local Facebook group.
Who can I report them to?

Yes, I've reported them to the group administrators, but those people are useless.

And it occurred to me that these may be stolen. Or fake

Do you know where they're located? Contact their county board of health, or their county attorney general, or their county sheriff.

I saw a report on Reddit about a local hospital having had two crates of supplies stolen. I'd report to the police, they might be looking for them already.

Or, it could be someone that had a stock of masks for construction work or something, and they are just selling them to others who currently need them more.

I just found a 10-pack of N-95 masks in my hobby room I bought a couple of years ago for a project. I can't decide if I should keep them for ourselves or donate them to the local clinic. But if someone had a stock of 1,000 of them for their business, they might consider selling them to help get through their business shutdown.
