Scam Safety Update: Be Aware of Scams tied to Government Stimulus Checks - March 31, 2020

Fraudsters haven’t wasted any time with scams related to the Coronavirus.  The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has received several reports of Coronavirus scams where individuals are contacted through text messages, social media posts/messages or phone calls.  With the Government Coronavirus Stimulus Checks, there is an increase in number of complaints. 
 
Please Do Not Give Out Any Personal Information

  • Do not share account numbers
  • Do not share social security numbers
  • Do not pay a processing fee for receiving a stimulus payment

Risk Mitigation:

  • Be aware of coronavirus scams through text alerts, email and newsletters
  • Government agencies do not communicate through social media outlets, such as Facebook
  • Never pay a fee for a government grant.  A government agency will never request an advanced processing fee to receive the grant
  • Beware of fake government agencies promoted by fraudsters. 
  • The only official list of all U.S. federal grant-making agencies can be found at www.grants.gov

Coronavirus direct payments will likely be in the form of direct deposits or through U.S. Treasury checks.  Fraudsters may look to seize the opportunity to create counterfeit U.S. Treasury checks in their scams.  They may also attempt to scam you into providing your account number under the pretense of direct depositing the stimulus payment to your account.  DO NOT GIVE YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION TO ANYONE.

Please contact our Member Contact Center directly if you have questions at 815-282-0300.
