Be alert to the potential for a new wave of scams. Many Americans will be receiving relief funds from the government in the coming months. Be certain that there will be scammers ready to pounce. The elderly, in particular, may be targeted.
Be Alert for Scams!
Here are the facts:
- Anyone who tells you they can get government money to you immediately is a scammer.
- The government will not ask you to pay any fees to get this money.
- The government will not call to ask for your Social Security number, bank account information, or credit card number. Anyone who does so is a scammer.
Other scam calls already being reported:
- Callers claiming to be conducting a "Coronavirus Survey" and requesting Social Security numbers.
- Callers saying they are from your bank, claiming that your branch is closing, and requesting account numbers.
Please be wary. Many people are living with a heightened sense of anxiety at the moment, so even the most savvy could fall victim to calls like these. Remind your friends and loved ones to:
NEVER GIVE PRIVATE INFORMATION, SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS, OR ACCOUNT NUMBERS TO ANYONE WHO CALLS.
If you receive any calls of this nature, simply hang up.
