SCAM ALERT re: Stimulus Checks

The FBI and other agencies are alerting all Americans that phone calls, texts, and emails asking for personal or financial information to get your federal stimulus payment are NOT legitimate. Do not give out your bank information, PayPal account information, Social Security number, or any other personal information if someone claims it is essential to sign you up for a stimulus check related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Consumers are NOT going to need to sign up for the stimulus checks. The IRS will use a taxpayer’s 2019 or 2018 tax return to send out the money via direct deposit or check.
