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
In a state so non-intuitive as to be called weird...

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.
