Michigan Residents Asked to be on “High Alert” for IRS Scams
The President just signed the stimulus aid package and the scammers are already at it.
The Grand Rapids Police posted a warning on Facebook that the IRS will NEVER call you and ask for your information.
Part of the Coronavirus Tax Relief will give several Americans $1,200 and Michigan's Attorney General Dana Nessel urged residents to be on "high alert" after already receiving several complaints.
Scams may come in the form of phone calls, texts, or e-mails asking you for a PayPal account, bank account, or social security number.
These fake phishing scams will likely ask for a person’s bank account information and insist $1,000 or more will be deposited directly into his or her bank account.
Never give out your personal information unless the other party is verified.
The stimulus will give out $1,200 to Americans who make up to $75,000. The IRS will get your information from your previous tax returns.
The IRS website is where you can find the most up-to-date information regarding stimulus checks.
