SCAM ALERT | 03/30/20 |

Mount Pleasant PD Scam Alert

Beware of Coronavirus stimulus check scams:

Here’s what you need to know

Do not give out your PayPal account information, Social Security number, bank account number or anything else if someone claims such information is essential to sign you up for a stimulus check relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s not. It’s a scam.

The FBI, state attorneys general and other agencies are alerting Americans that phone calls, texts or emails asking for personal or financial information to get the $1,200 federal payment are not legitimate.

The Better Business Bureau has reported that the level of "stimulus scams" has gone through the roof.

The real stimulus cash is likely to hit bank accounts within the next three weeks or later, but taxpayers don’t have to sign up to get the money. The IRS will direct deposit the funds you’re your bank account, if they have that information from your 2018 or 2019 tax return payment/refund. If your payment/refund were handled by check, your check will be mailed.

Checks are expected to take longer. Unfortunately, some people could experience delays.


Tenga Cuidado con las estafas con el cheque de estímulo:

Esto es lo que necesita saber

No proporcione ninguna información de su cuenta PayPal, número de Seguro Social, número de cuenta bancaria o cualquier otra cosa si alguien le pide dicha información diciendo que es esencial para registrarse para una verificación de su cheque de estímulo relacionada con la pandemia COVID-19.

No lo es. Es una estafa.

El FBI, los fiscales generales del estado y otras agencias están alertando a los estadounidenses de que las llamadas telefónicas, mensajes de texto o correos electrónicos pidiendo información personal o financiera para obtener el pago federal de $1,200 no son legítimos.

El Better Business Bureau ha informado de que el nivel de "estafas de estímulo" an sido demaciadas.

Es probable que el cheque de estímulo real llegue a las cuentas bancarias en las próximas tres semanas o más tardar, pero los contribuyentes no tienen que registrarse para obtener el cheque. El IRS con la informacion que tiene de su reembolso de declaración de impuestos de 2018 o 2019 le depositará directamente los fondos en su cuenta bancaria. Si su pago/reembolso fue manejado con cheque, su cheque será enviado por correo.

Se espera que los cheques tomen más tiempo. Desafortunadamente, algunas personas podrían experimentar retrasos.
