Beware of Stimulus Check Scams. 
Press release from City of Albuquerque

How to Spot a COVID-19 Federal Stimulus Scam: 

  • Government agencies will not contact you through social media, phone, text, or email.
  • Government agencies will not ask you to verify your personal information or provide banking information. It is not necessary to provide this information in order to receive your stimulus check.
  • Government agencies will not ask for your Social Security Number.
  • Government agencies will not contact you to get your funds “immediately” or “faster.”
  • Government agencies will not ask you to pay a “processing fee.”

If a scammer calls or contacts you, don’t engage – hang up – delete the email – do not click on a link. Report scams to the Federal Trade Commission.

Watch Out For: 

  • Government imposters – confirm websites from lookalike websites. Make sure it is a legitimate government website before believing any information provided to you.
  • When in doubt, assume it is a scam.
