Stimulus Check Fake Video Fools Hundreds

Stimulus Check announcement comes as a blessing to the Americans. A huge chunk of the citizens has been benefited from the much-needed financial backup.

Common people, businessmen, and many others have already claimed their benefits. Analysts reported a sharp decrease of 10% in defaulters since the onset of aids. The online petition initiated by a restaurant owner in Colorado gathered a lot of momentum.

The proposal made in the bill was quite simple. It asked the government to provide a sum of $2000 to each of the Americans. The federal government had provided a series of three checks to selected Americans earlier.

Such scenarios are happy hunting grounds for fake news and frauds. Many fake posts about a fourth stimulus payment have been circulated recently. A recent video on Facebook became viral.

The video made people believe that the President will indeed be giving out a fourth stimulus check. Let us learn more about the story in detail below.

Stimulus Check rumors are taking a wrong turn recently. A lot of fake news has been doing the rounds. A recent video has become immensely popular on Facebook.

The video portrays the President of the United States, Joe Biden signing a fourth stimulus order. Biden is seen signing what appears to be an executive order.

Later on, Biden says that this was the confirmation of the fourth stimulus payment for the citizens. He elaborated that these will be direct deposits and will be sent directly to the bank accounts. 

Most of the residents were fooled into believing that the video was true. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. The viral clip was heavily edited.

One can make the difference of how poorly Biden’s voice has been impersonated. The IRS has been repeatedly asking the residents to be aware of such scams.

Some of such fake stimulus check news might contain phishing links.
