Beware of Coronavirus Scams – Stimulus Payments
The federal government is preparing a $2 trillion stimulus package to help Americans through the Coronavirus pandemic. It includes several benefits, such as stimulus payments for all Americans.
Whenever there is a stimulus package, there are scammers ready to exploit it. They’re sending emails supposedly from the government asking for their personal or banking information, so that they can send their stimulus payment now. They’re false because it will take at least several weeks for the government to send them out.
If you get this type of email, do not respond to it or click any of its links or attachments. Delete it, and report the scam to the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/complaint.
