Did You Know…?

June 9, 2020 | COVID-19

Criminals are continuing to use the COVID-19 Economic Impact Payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money.

Watch out for Economic Impact Payment scams, fake at-home test kits, cures, vaccine, pills and advice for COVID-19, fake shops and websites selling large qualities of medical supplies, fake charities soliciting donations, and fraudulent investment information about companies working on a vaccine. Finally, be alert about possible phishing schemes utilizing e-mails, letters, texts and links using keywords such as “CoronaVirus” “COVID-19” and “Stimulus” in varying ways. Read today’s IRS press release for more details and guidance.
