BEWARE OF SCAMS, when it comes to these payments...
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody is warning of many scams.
The IRS will never call, text, or use social media to contact check recipients.
Other Important tips:
- Do not respond to text messages, emails or ads directing you to click on a link;
- Do not provide any personal or financial information in response to an unsolicited message;
- Do not trust caller ID displays claiming a call is from the IRS—as spoofing technology allows scammers to change phone displays to impersonate government agencies; and
- Do not make any advance payment in order to secure or expedite access to a benefit.
