Don’t fall for it!

The IRS is warning Americans about a text-message scam promising fake stimulus checks. People are receiving text messages telling them “You have received a direct deposit of $1,200 from COVID-19 TREAS FUND” and offering a link to “accept this payment”.

But the IRS says it’s a scam – the link takes you to a fake IRS site that asks for your personal and bank account information.

The IRS says they wouldn’t send out a text message like this one – and besides, Congress has yet to approve a second round of stimulus checks like the ones sent back in April.
