Federal Stimulus/Economic Impact Payment Related Scams

Beware that there is also an increased risk of scammers attempting to exploit individuals. Here are a few tips to spot potential red flags:
  • The IRS will not contact you by phone, email, text or social media to verify your Social Security Number, bank account or credit card information.
  • Scammers may suggest that you can get a faster payment by working on your behalf. This scam could be conducted by social media or even in person.
  • Scammers may mail a bogus check, perhaps in an odd amount, then tell you to call a number or verify information online in order to cash it.
If you receive unsolicited emails, text messages or social media attempts to gather information that appear to be from either the IRS or an organization closely linked to the IRS. Notify the IRS at
