There is no 2nd stimulus check yet – beware of fraudsters

Nov 13, 2020

There is no second stimulus payment yet of $1,200 or otherwise for the IRS to even send, but that hasn’t stopped a new text scam and others from trying to swindle you out of your money and personal information. Urgent messages about the next batch of stimulus checks are bogus, since this payment doesn’t yet exist.

Since March, the Federal Trade Commission has received over 5,000 complaints about text scams that defrauded vulnerable people out of more than $2 million.

Please be careful. Ignore any texts or emails about your stimulus check. Go directly to the IRS website for information or call your accountant.
