Scam Alert!

From a friend...

Please spread the word. . .there have been numerous reports of scam artists trying to commit fraud by claiming they are representatives of the IRS and that in order for you to receive your $600 or $1,200 or whatever stimulus payment from the IRS, you need to provide personal information about yourself, including your Social Security Number.

These requests are totally FRAUDULENT. The IRS will not ask you to provide this information in order to receive your stimulus payment. . .not by e-mail. . .not by mail. . .not over the phone. . .not by someone showing up at your house. The IRS already has all the information they need.

Please let everyone you know that e-mails, phone calls & people knocking at your door asking for information are scamming you in order to commit fraud.

This is especially important to our elderly family and friends who might be duped by some smooth talking scumbag. For once, I have to admit that we should trust the government.

Let’s shut these jerks down. . .the scam artists, that is.

Here's a link to the IRS website, where the agency warns about the scam.
