As You Wait For Your Stimulus Check, Beware Of Scammers! – St. John


Scammers are just waiting to find new opportunities to defraud people and take their personal information. They have found a new way to take advantage of the confusion going on, as the world that we know changes everyday. A few things to keep in mind that might help you or someone you know….

  • Checks have not gone out yet so be careful of any checks you might receive in the mail! Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has set a goal of getting the first payments out the door by April 17


  • You should not have to click through emails and different links to get your money.


  • Do not fall for any phone call, text message or email asking for your information! The Internal Revenue Service will use the direct deposit information on your 2019 return to send your payment to your bank account directly. If you don’t provide the IRS with your direct deposit details or you closed that account, then the IRS will ONLY THEN mail you a check.


  • If you have any questions about Stimulus Payments always go directly to their site irs.gov/coronavirus.

“The IRS urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS will not call , text you, email you or contact you on social media  asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.” -www.irs.gov
